While I had my sewing machine out last weekend, I decided to use some of the fabric that inspired the room (and that I used for Benson’s dog bed) to make an envelope pillow. I realize it may seem strange to have such a small amount of the fabric that ties it all together but I’m pleased with how it’s working so far.
Step 1: Cut your fabric. My pillow is 20 x 20 so I cut one piece 21 x 21, and two pieces 21 x 14. I like the pillow case to be full, which is why I cut it so close to size.
Step 2: On the two rectangular pieces, fold one long edge over about a quarter inch, and then fold it over about a quarter inch again. Iron well.
Step 4: Place both rectangular pieces on top of the square piece, right sides together, with the pre-sewn seams overlapping.
Such a simple pillow and yet it adds so much, although it looks a little lonely. Now I just have to find some more fabric to make a couple more.
