Here's the link to my pinterest which will take you to the site that the original idea came from.
Here's my take on the instructions:
1.) Buy your choice of fabric and either pillow forms or old pillows that need to be covered.
2.) Measure and cut fabric. Width should be 1 inch wider than your pillow and length should be 2 1/2 times longer than your pillow.
5.) Next pin the raw edges to keep everything together for you to sew on the machine. (Can you see my little red pin? My lack of photography skills are coming through in the picture...)
6.) Sew the edges, Curbly.com recommends using 1/2 seem edge. I wasn't really sure how to measure that, because my fabric kept measuring a 1 inch seam so I just eye balled it. Thankfully it worked out!
7.) Once you've sewn the edges turn the fabric inside out (or right side in?) so that you have an opening to slip the pillow into.
Heres my pillow half in the pillow case. I was getting pretty excited at this point because I realized my creation was actually going to work!
TA DA! The Finished Product! It took me a while to do the first one because I kept second guessing all of my measurements, but once that was finished and I realized it worked...it took me less than 10 minutes for the second one. I'm not sure if thats a time to be proud of in the sewing world, but in Meghan world it was a RECORD!
I picked Dallas Cowboys fabric for my future hubby. These are for him to put up in his man cave that he's working on. I think I'll save them back for Valentines day. <3
