Since moving into my new place, I have enjoyed creating my new “home”.
The quickest way to personalize a room is through sofa pillows. Your living room is a place to entertain and have fun conversation pieces.
Here is a step by step guide to personalizing pillows. I hope to start making and sharing DIY videos soon.
- Measure dimensions of your pillow. Add 1″ to the height and multiply the length by 2, then add 6″ i.e. (18″ x 18″ pillow requires 19″ x 42″ fabric).
- Place rectangle right-side down and press 1/2″. Fold over and press another 1/2″. Stitch 1/4″ from inner fold.
- Overlap right and left edges by 4″(right sides together). Measure the square to make sure it matches your pillow dimensions.
- Sew the top and bottom edges with 1/2″ seam allowance. Press. Turn your pillowcase right side out.
- Insert pillow.
How did this work out for you? It took me a little over an hour to complete.
