Oh. Yes. I. Did!
Two projects in one day and two blog tutorials? What, whaaaat? I’m feeling a little peppy, confident…badass. So please excuse my cockiness.
Earlier today I reupholstered (if you can call it that) my gross ottoman into something fabulous!
It has really started to transform my second-hand bonus room. And since I’m on the hunt for slipcovers for my couches and since I had some awesome leftover chevron burlap fabric, I decided to sew some envelope pillow covers.
This is what my pillows looked like before.
Don’t judge me on my cheap Big Lots buy from my early twenties.
Here are my instructions on how to sew an envelope pillow cover for a 16″x16″ pillow.
1. Cut your fabric 18″x44″ (you could probably go as short at 36″ on the length but I wanted to make sure there wasn’t a gap).
4. Next, lay down the fabric, print side up and wrap your pillow in it to see where your flaps will meet. Pin it or hold it real tight until you get to the sewing machine and hope for the best (like moi).
