Striped Quilted Pillow Cover

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I always make the pillow cover about 1/2" smaller than the form. I like my pillows to be firm, not floppy. I had a 16" square pillow form and cut the top to 16.5" square and took 1/2" seams. The back is a linen-type fabric that I sewed into an envelope closure.

What you will need

  • Quilting cotton
  • batting
  • linen
