Hey guys, I’m super excited to be back over here at A Little Tipsy today to share a fun sewing tutorial. I am a self taught sewer, so I’m not technical or detailed. I usually figure out all of my projects on my own (with a little trial and error!) and I share them in non-sewing terms because I really don’t know much!
I am currently re-doing my master bedroom color scheme and decor, and in the process I am making new pillows for my bed, because you can never have too many pillows on your bed! Today’s pillow tutorial is super simple. I got it done in less than 30 minutes, and it makes such a great impact for being so simple.
I found this cute fabric at my local Bennion Crafts store. I love that it’s not just a typical chevron, but has the accents with the dots. This is for an 18 inch pillow, but if you are doing a different size, just adjust the measurements accordingly. Cut your fabric to 19×19 and 19×24 inches. This will allow for seams and also give your pillow a snug fit. Then cut your 24 inch piece in half, making two 19×12 inch pieces. From there you are going to hem one side of the 12 inch pieces (pictured below)
After your 2 sides are hemmed, lay your 19×19 piece on the ground facing up. Lay each 12 inch section on top, right sides facing down, with the seam in the middle. They will overlap creating the “envelope” fold of your pillow.
Then sew around all 4 edges with with a straight stitch and a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Once it is all sewn, trim off the excess fabric from all sides. Now all you need to do is turn the pillow case right side out and stuff
with your pillow!
Thanks for letting me stop by and share a sneak peak into my new master bedroom. Make sure to check out the full reveal on my site later this month (after my big move to Sunny St. George!)
