Now that we have two colorful chairs (here & here) in our living room, we wanted to tie everything together with our couch. And the way that we are doing this is using the extra fabric from our chairs to create pillows. I know there are lots of tutorials on how to make an envelope pillow: like here & here. So I will just be sharing how I created 4 pillows within a couple of hours.
First I cut my fabric. I am using a 16″ pillow form, so I cut my fabric 17″x38″.
Then I folded the short ends 1/2″ then folded again 5/8″, pressing and top-stitching into place.
Next I folded my fabric (making sure right sides of the fabric was together), giving it a 4″ overlap and pined in place. Looked like this:
After I sewed a 1/2″ seam along the unfinished edges.
Then I clipped the corners to give the pillow a crisp point.
I then turned the fabric right side out and inserted the pillow forms. And here are my pillows.
Do you want to update your living room decor with pillows? Believe me when I say its easy….,
