I love pillows. I hate that pillows cost a crapload. I know its not an EPIC project but I have something cooking that is heart stopping amazing. So today I am going to show you the easiest pillow tutorial ever.
So as much as I love pillows I hate when kids(or husbands) wipe their faces on them and they aren’t removable. Spot Clean Only translated in my language is “I will look like crap in 5 minutes”
So the first rule is that it must be removable.
It must be washable.
They must be cute.
Start off with a piece of fabric that is 19” long and cut selvage to selvage. (Basically the entire width of the fabric.) In the pic it is folded in 1/2 still from the bolt.
Then on one end sew a hem.
Next you are going to fold it up about 14” (it doesn’t have to be exact) with the inside of the hem on the outside. (Right sides together.)
Then you are going to stitch down each side, reinforcing the ends. And along the top (where it is folded).
Fold one of the top corners down to the opposite bottom corner to find where it is square.
Fold it over there and stitch along the bottom
Then measure about 15” down and trim.
Next you want to hem this edge. Make sure that you are hemming it so the inside of the hem is on the top of the pillow.
Then just like before you are going to stitch down each side securing the ends really well.
Clip your corners so that they are sharp when its right side out
And then flip it right side out!! Hooray! You made my crazy easy removable zipper free pillow!!
A few tips:
The fabric that I used is Duck Cloth. It is a heavy weight canvas material, I love it because it holds its shape.
The Pillow size that I used was 19”. The reason that I cut the fabric at 19” is so that it fills it firmly. It goes back to having it hold its shape….
