How to Sew a Cover for your pillow
Cut your material in the following sizes:
2- 16x16 inch squares from 2 different coordinating fabric
16 x16 inch square for the front
16 x17 inch squares for back of each pillow whichever material you
want on the backside
On one of your two 16x16 inch squares use a ruler to make a large
isosceles triangle by placing the ruler in the bottom corner. (see
picture below) Draw a line to the middle point (8 inches). Cut out
your two triangles. Turn the side edges over 1/4 inch and sew a hem.
For backing, cut 16x17 inch square in half lengthwise. Turn long
edge down on a rectangle and sew. Pin if needed. Continue with other
rectangle. Set aside.
Pin one of the triangles to the front of your pillowcase right side
up. Pin other triangle to opposite side. Sew each side. Make sure
the tips of your triangles won't get caught in the seam.
Now pin the backing on top of the front. The two pieces of the
backing will overlap.
If you find your edges don't match up trim the excess.
Sew along edges taking out the pins as you go. Turn right side
out. Place pillow form through opening in back. Tie two triangle
