Envelope Pillow Case

After my initial rounds of making pillows, I thought it might be helpful to learn how to make pillow cases.  This way I would be able to switch up the cases without having to cut them off of the pillows I covered.  I headed on over to trusty you tube and followed this 8 minute clip for a quick lesson.

The video has great step by step instructions which I pretty much followed to a t.  I started off with this decorative pillow and some more left over fabric from mom's summer set.

Following the steps I measures out my material, sewed the hems and then sewed the around whole case. 

Flip inside out and stuff with the pillow and you're good to go!

With how quickly these steps were to pick up I'm ready to make cases for all of the decorative pillows lying around!


  1. It's cute! It's SO easy to make envelope pillow cases - I love it! My goal is to learn how to make a zippered one someday - that terrifies me, haha

    1. Yes!! I have the zipper foot and hopefully will work up to using it soon.

  2. Thank you for posting this! It'll make a great deployment project -- fun, bright pillows here I come! :D

  3. I love these. I always prefer to be able to remove the pillow cases if I can, it's especially good for being able to throw them in the wash!
