The throw pillows in our house are the most often changed part of our decor. For something small, throw pillows can have a big impact on the style and color scheme of a room. It’s also very easy, and very affordable to change out your pillowcases every season, or even every month, to suit the changing weather or your changing likes and dislikes.
If you’re in the mood for a little pillow switch-up, forget hidden zipper and blind stitching closed seams, this style of pillowcase is simple, quick and easy enough that even novice sewers can feel confident in a great outcome.
Here’s what you need:
3. Center the fabric over your pillow with the right side up. Using the pillow as a size guide. Bring one hemmed end of the fabric over the top.
4. Repeat with the other side. This creates an overlap on the back of the pillowcase. Pin the top and bottom edges
5. Stitch along the sop and bottom edge. Turn right side out and press.
6. Insert your pillow and toss it on the couch or bed for a new pop of color!
