- Cut a rectangle of fabric
- The width should be the width of your pillow plus 2"
- The length should be double the length of your pillow plus 8"
- The fold lines should be half the length of the pillow plus 3", measuring from the edge toward the center of the pillow.
For our 24" pillow, cut a rectangle of fabric 26" wide and 56" long.
We will hem the two short sides of the rectangle with a double hem. Fold the end over toward the wrong side of the fabric 1/2 inches and iron. Fold in again another 1/2" and iron. Sew along this seam.
Do the same on the other short end of the rectangle.
Lay your rectangle flat with the right side of the fabric facing up. Measure from the end in toward the center 15" inches and fold over. Do the same on the other end. Your fabric will overlap about three inches.
Sew up the two side seams with a one-inch seam allowance. Trim the excess seam allowance.
Turn the pillow cover right-side out and insert pillow.
