10 Minute pillow cover



Its true...I am back.  A little wiser, a little older, and ready to start blogging again.  We are doing well and there have been lots of changes in our family!  More on that later.  

Here is my first project back.
Enjoy!




I decided it was time to recover my pillows.  I figured out the easiest no fuss way to do it and after you make one it will really only take you 10 minutes or less to whip one up.  

(I got this fabric from Joann Fabrics.  Super cute and I know they have an aqua and pink polka dot as well.)


Not all the way over.


I don't measure the extra that you need...it always just works out.  Try it...you'll catch on.


I like my pillows to fit into the case nice and snug so when I am eyeballing where to cut I pretty much just make sure it fits right onto the fabric.


You are just going to cut right up that fold.


Then you will have front and a back.


I just eyeball where to cut making sure one side is slightly bigger than the other.


I just pressed the fabric over 1/4 inch twice with an iron and sewed right down to finish the edges.









I love making these cases this way because it really is just no fuss and so easy.  It's so nice not to worry about measuring and pillows are really forgiving :)    

Happy sewing!
