EASY and FAST Pillow Cover * Sewing 101
Over the weekend was like many around here with running around doing errands and projects. We started out on Saturday morning going out to breakfast at our favorite local restaurant. The kind where everyone knows your name and you are friends with all of the servers. Those are the best kind.
But then I saw something and said: “Honey, hit the brakes”! I spotted this out of the corner of my eye and it was at a small garage sale that was in another neighborhood all together just steps from the grocery store.
I sew and like many of you I’m self-taught and learned before the days of YouTube or blogs by lots of trial and error. Over the years I’ve made draperies, pillows, clothing, and even my kiddos nursery quilts and all of that baby stuff…so it’s been a lot of time on the sewing machine…
How to make Pillow Covers with Ease
With your fabric FACING DOWN, turn over one SHORT END up about 12″. Then turn over the other SHORT END (that is on the opposite side) over about 16″ to OVERLAP the bottom piece. This forms sort of an envelope with the long sides being raw open edges for now.
It’s going to look like the photo below when you’ve sewn down the two long sides.
