Fresh Face for Spring" post, I like to replace my pillow cases in our living room every season. As you might imagine, this could get quite expensive. Yes, it could. But not for me. This Spring I made 2 cases for our living room out of 1/2 yard of fabric ($15) without any zippers or buttons. The entire project took me 20 minutes for two pillows. They completely transformed our living room from the dark days of Winter. I encourage you to try it! And so you actually do... Here's the DIY template I designed for you :
I made two versions - one with horizontal strips and one with vertical.
Measure the fabric so it 8 inches longer that twice the width.
And 1 inch longer than the length.
Fold back 2 inches on each side - fabric right side down.
Now, flip the fabric right side up. You'll sew the pillow inside out, then inverse it.
Be sure to press all of the seams- by the way, I love my Rowenta iron. They are the best.
Sew the two side seams.
