I made a few decorative pillow covers with the extra fabric from an ottoman recover job for a client. Here is the easiest decorative pillow you will ever sew.
No zipper, no lining. Take an existing decorative pillow and make a cover for it lickity split!
For a 16 inch Decorative pillow:
1 – Cut Fabric.
One piece 17 inches x 17 inches
Two pieces 17 inches x 11 inches
2 – Sew Hem on one long side of each of the 17 inch x 11 inch pieces.
I serged the edge and then folded the 1/2 seam allowance under and stitched it. (you can zig-zag if you don’t have a serger.)
3- Lay your pieces together.
Right Sides together align the raw edges to the edge and the hemmed edges to the center, they will overlap.
4 – Sew the entire perimeter of the pillow case, 1/2 seam allowance.
I sewed my seam first and then serged all the way around. (you can zig-zag if you don’t have a serger.)
5 – Turn it right side out and stuff a 16 inch square pillow in it.
