Pillow Covers in 30 Minutes or Less
Then you are going to cut two more pieces of fabric for the backside of your pillow cover. For these two pieces you are going to use a little math equation. Don’t be scared! It’s an easy one and it will help you figure out the sizing of these two pieces of fabric for any size pillow!
You are going to take half the width measurement and then add 2 for the hem + 4 inches for the overlap of the slip cover. So the equation should look like this:
(half the width)+2(for the hem)+4(for the overlap)=X
In my case the equations looked like this:
So I cut my two backside pieces of fabric to the measurements of 16 x20.5*
*remember the length measurement will stay the same so in my case, the length (20 inches) + .5 for the seam allowance we added earlier!
When you are done sewing you are going to carefully clip each corner making sure you don’t cut into your seam! This will help give you nice pointy corners in your pillow cover 🙂
Then flip the pillow cover right side out (you may want to use a chopstick to push out the corners) and stuff your pillow form inside! Easy peasy I tell you!
You can now make one…or ten…in no time flat!
