DIY Beach Pillows

Pin It Now!

I made these pillows in one hour last night!
It's a super-easy sewing project.

Here are my notes and simple instructions...

(Height of pillow) + (1/2 inch)
(Width of pillow) x2 + (7 inches)

In order to sew a covering for a pillow that measures 20" x 20"
this is how you'll calculate using the above formula...
(20") + (1/2 inch) = 20 1/2 inches
(20")x2 = 40 + 7 inches = 47 inches

So... cut your fabric 20 1/2 inches x 47 inches

Then... you turn under the short edges 1/4" and sew
then turn under again 1/4" and sew again.  
Do this on both short ends.

Next step, with right sides facing each other, 
fold fabic to the size of the pillow 
with an overlap (that will be about 6 inches)
Then pin the outer edges and sew, as shown in diagram...

Now, turn the pillowcase back to "right-side" out.  Push out the corners with a blunt edge
(like a ruler or scissor handle)
and place the covering on your pillow.
This is what the back opening looks like...

It's all done.  Now, wasn't that easy?

 Here are some other pillows that I covered last night using this same pattern:

 *I bought my fabric at Premier Fabrics in Germantown, TN
