An Easy Pillow Slipcover
I have already made a lot of pillows for my home. They make a room friendly and cozy. The problem is that I want more and new, but i have got no space to store the old ones. That`s why i decided not to make decorative pillows any more, but sew some nice slipcovers and change them as I like. I think it`s a brilliant idea! Follow me)
Things you need:
- a piece of fabric of the right size
- thread and needles
- sewing machine

For this tutorial, I used a 16″ square pillow form.I like my slipcovers nice and tight, so I only add a 1/2″ seam allowance.Cut one piece of fabric 16 1/2″ x 16 1/2″.
Cut two pieces of fabric 16 1/2″ x 11″.
You need to hem one long side of each of the pieces. Fold the edge over about 1/2″ and iron it flat.
Then fold it over again 1/2″ and iron it.
Now sew down the side close to the inside folded edge. Repeat with the other piece of fabric. Someone may have been in a hurry and forgot to take a photo of this step. Oops!
Now it’s time to sew the whole thing together. Place the large piece of fabric on your table. Take one of the narrow pieces and line it up flush with the left side of the bottom fabric, right sides together. If your fabric doesn’t have a right/wrong side, just make sure the smooth side of the hemmed edge is facing down.
