As children grow older and tastes change, the way you decorate your house can change as well. These pillows were originally for our bed, then found their way to the sofa. As you can see, they needed a little tlc. I needed to do something with them fast.
- An old throw pillow (or pillow form)
- Fabric, length depending on size of pillow
- Thread in matching color
After we bought the children new beds and comforters, I decided they needed some new pillows to spruce up their new space. It was the perfect project for revamping my throw pillows. This is a project you can complete in about an hour.
First, you want to cut out two pieces of fabric. I suggest adding about four inches to both the length and the width of the pillow. You can measure by laying the pillow on top of the fabric to be cut.
Place the right sides of the fabric together and stitch around three sides, using about a half an inch seam.
Leave one end of the pillowcase open; this end you will use to turn the fabric.
Clip corners and turn fabric. On the raw end, turn under about half an inch. Place pillow inside and pin closed. Sew all around the edge of the pillow.
Sew a second time around the pillow, about an inch away from your first seam.
All that is left is to enjoy your new pillow. If you change your decor in the future, it is very easy to make another pillowcase. I think that I will be making some new ones when I start on the kids’ bedroom remodel. Wait until you see what I have in store!
