Envelope Pillow Tutorial

By Leah Morrow

20 minutes and 1/2 yard of fabric, I swear



Step 1 ::  get 1/2 yard of 45" fabric at your local fabric shop, picking the fabric will be the hardest part of this project



Step 2 ::  press a 1" hem into the short (18") sides of your fabric



Step 3 ::  stitch your hem



Step 4 ::  next, fold in the hemmed edges (right sides together), overlap your fabric to create an 18" length (you'll have an 18" square) and press.



Step 5 ::  finally, stitch the 2 open edges closed.  pull your fabric right side out through the "envelope" opening and fill it with a pillow form.



ta da!  easy to sew, easy to clean and easy to change
