I am obsessed with bold and sassy pillows (don’t believe me? Check out my pinterest pillow board here!) However, bold colors and patterns go out of style quickly the condo doesn’t have tons of storage for old pillows.
Also, every time Sean goes to sit on the couch and has to move 12 pillows to make room, he gets, umm, annoyed.
So, I’ve started making removable pillow covers to jazz up the pillows I already have in a changeable way.
I made these particular covers from an indoor/outdoor tablecloth from homegoods. I Loved the navy blue color & the geometric pattern. If you’re looking for a similar fabric, check this one out!
I decided to cover these pillows that I also got at homegoods! I got them a while ago. They are filled with down and so fluffy. However, they had a weird temple on the front that wasn’t exactly my style.
Here’s what I did:
Lay out the fabric you want to use. Instead of measuring, I prefer to lay the pillow on top. You want room for the fabric to come up to the side seam plus a 1 inch seam allowance.
As far as length goes, You want it long enough to make your envelope. you want the “flaps” to overlap about 1/4 to 1/3 a pillow length, plus an inch seam allowance on each side.
Iron your fabric so it looks nice.
Hem all four sides of the fabric.
Next, Place your pillow on and fold the fabric inside out as if you were wrapping the pillow like a present.
Now, attach the sides of your case!
All you have to do it take it out, flip it inside out, and ta-da!
Are you pillow crazy? Why does it drive men crazy to have extra pillows?
