Since I am now home pretty much 24/7 I have become obsessed with prettying up our house. One thing that is cheap and easy to do is change your throw pillows. I haven't had much luck finding pillows that fit the bill or my price-point so I decided to break out the sewing machine and make my own! Since I've never sewed before this has been quite the adventure, with lots of little frustrations along the way. Thanks to some helpful You Tube videos I was able to quickly figure things out and make several cool slipcovers for pillows I have laying around the house. These slipcovers can be made to fit any square pillow and don't require a pattern.
Here's what you'll need:
- fabric of your choice (depending on how big your pillow is, you'll need anywhere from 1-2 yards)
- a sewing machine
- stick pins
- a pillow insert (or pillow you have laying around already)
- a ruler or yardstick
- marking pen (I use a Sharpie)
What to do:
1. Measure your pillow from one side to the other.
