Welcome to my day on the 12 days of Christmas blog hop hosted by Sarah of www.confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com.
Today I am going to share a fun throw pillow with an envelope back. This is very easy to do.
I love these pillow covers and the best thing is I can have just a few pillow forms and lots of covers. The covers are easy to store.
Materials for a 12 inch pillow cover:
12 inch pillow form
12 1/2" square of fabric
2 8" x 12 1/2" rectangles of contrast fabric
Take the 2 rectangles and press over 1/4" along 1 long edge of each rectangle then fold a 1/4" over again (so you have a double hem) and stitch.
Take your 12 1/2" square and put the fabrics right sides together, your hems will be in the middle of the square and will be overlapping.
Put some pins in to hold in place and stitch with a 1/4" seam all the way around. Clip the corners, do a quick press and turn right side out and stuff your pillow form into the pillow cover.
You can make a 12 1/2" quilt block if you want to use that as well.
