>Creative Share: Pretty Pretty Pillows


Every single Lovely Wednesday
The Trendy Treehouse hosts one of my absolute FAVORITE things

It’s such a BLAST, and I learn so much!
In a previous post, I mentioned that I had been working on some cute little pillows

I thought I would share with you the very simple process I used to cover the pillows that I was using!

EASY EASY EASY way to cover
Measure the pillow you are covering horizontally, and vertically.
Add one inch
to each sides measurement.
[My pillows were 7in x 7in, therefore adding the one inch makes the measurement I need 8 inches]

Measure TWO 8in x8in pieces of fabric and cut them out.
Turn the pieces of fabric together where their patterned sides are face to face
Now pin these pieces together

Next, Sew a 1/2 inch seam down each side, leaving one side with an opening
[like the image below]

Snip the very corners of the covering, so that it creates nice corners after you stuff the cover with the pillow.
Turn the covering right side in, then iron!
 It is VERY important to Iron down the seams. This sets the seams, and makes a better appearance.
So, although it doesn’t seem like this step would be important, It actually REALLY REALLY is.

Stuff the covering with the pillow, 
then close up the opening by using a slip stitch method.
Slip stitching is SUPER simple, and quick.

Very much enjoyed and make super great home made gifts for friends and family. I made some for Mother’s Day and wish I would have made some for myself as they came out so beautiful.
