Heart Bunting c/o: Aidie’s Hideaway
This is a tutorial for a simple envelope pillow cover. The red and white heart pillow is 14 x 14 and the white heart pillow is 20 x 20.
American Flag c/o: Barn Owl Primitives
This pillow cover will require a 14 x 14 pillow insert. The pillow cover will measure 14 x 14 but I measured out 15 x 15 inches–leaving an extra inch to allow for sewing. I used the pins as a guide for cutting the fabric.
I am about the worst free-hand drawer in the world, so I had to find a heart shape template that would work. This doily worked perfectly. I pinned it to the fabric and then I ONLY cut one side of the heart out.
Keep the 15 x 15 heart side face up. Place one of the 10 x 15 panels on top and fold down about 1.5 inches. I do this so that there will be a clean edge that won’t fray when placing the pillow in the cover.
This is what the envelope opening should look like. And that’s it! These are my favorite pillows–I’m thinking I just might keep them out all year.
