How to sew a pillow
Michaels has started selling fabric and Bella found this cool fur fabric. She is so into decorating her room right now that I thought pillow would be the perfect project!
How to make a pillow
Prewash fabric if needed.
Cut two pieces 12″ X 18″ of fabric for the back of the pillow
Cut one piece of fabric 18″ X 18″ (The piece of fur from Michaels was already an 18″ square, perfect!)
On each piece of 12″ X 18″ fabric turn the 18″ side under about and inch and sew about a 1/2″ from the edge.
Place 18″ square of fabric RIGHT side UP. Lay the two pieces of fabric RIGHT side DOWN on top of the 18″ square. Overlap the pieces in the middle. Sew all the way around the square.
Turn fabric right side out. Insert an 18″ (or slightly smaller) pillow form into the pillow cover.
See how simple it was to make a pillow cover!
The pillow is so soft! She loves it!
It looks great in her room and she is so proud of what she made!
