Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to be able to cut out a simple rectangular template on paper
  • You need to be able to stitch straight and zigzag seams
  • You need to be able to do buttonholes either on your sewing machine or by hand

Pattern Description:

I love to mix and match fabrics and wanted to create a pillow cover that's easy to make but with a difference.

You can choose bright fun designs or soft pale colours like the baby blue one I made for a more subtle look. I love the way that the facing just peeps out under the buttons adding a splash of colour or contrast to the pillow.

Each time you combine two different fabrics and buttons you will get a completely different look.

The tutorial will show even a beginner how to create this simple design and includes lots of close up photographs and simple to follow instructions to help you every step of the way. There are no zips or difficult seams.

The sewing guide includes a printable template to help you position the buttonholes.

  • This cover will fit a 16" (40cm) square pillow cover
