I recently made some pillow covers out of some cute holiday fabric I had picked up for Christmas. While I realize it is now January, I think the method I used was pretty interesting so I’m going to post about it anyway.
I really love making pillow covers, as it’s such a cheap and easy way to get down filled pillows (with $7 IKEA inserts). This way I can have seasonal pillows without breaking the bank. I had to figure out a way to make the covers removable to make it even more thrifty. That way I can reuse the inserts and I only have to store the covers when it’s no longer that season.
Next I took my four strips from when I had trimmed my squares and made them into ribbons by folding them in on themselves and sewing them together. You could use actual ribbon for this and it would be cute and would save a lot of time.
Let me know if you have any questions.
