Patchwork Pillow Covers
This will make two matching patchwork pillow covers.
You will need:
1 yard of two different kinds of material, something that
2- 15 x15 inch pillow forms
Cut your material into the following sizes...
2 -16x16 inch squares; 1 each from the 2 different coordinating
2 -16 x17 inch squares for back of each pillow whichever material
you want on the backside
~If you'd like to use a 14x14 inch pillow form cut your squares
15x15 inches and the backs 15x16 inches.
How to Sew a Pillow Cover
Using a yard stick or plastic ruler lay your ruler diagonally on one
16 x16 square. Draw a line with a fabric pencil or chalk.
Do the same to the second 16x16 square. Cut on the diagonal line.
Take one triangle from each material so you have two different
colored triangles. Put right sides together and sew down the
diagonal to make a square.
Set aside. Take the other two coordinating triangles and draw a
diagonal line with a ruler like you did previously. Cut on line. Now
you should have 4 smaller triangles.
Take one triangle from different material and sew with right sides
together. Continue until all your triangles form a square.
For backing, cut squares in half. Now you have 4 rectangles. Turn
one long edge down on a rectangle and sew. Pin if needed.
Continue with all rectangles. Pin the front of your pillowcase to
back with right sides together and the hemmed edges in the middle.
The two pieces of the backing will overlap. If you find your edges
don't match up trim the excess. Sew all along edges taking out the
pins as you go. Turn right side out. Place pillow form through
opening in back.
