Hello, today I wanted to share my first attempt at doing a D.I.Y pillow cover . I don't know how to sew on a zipper, so I figured another way to try this without to much work. I am not good with the sowing machine. I can only do a straight line. Totally new to me, but I watched some videos on You Tube and that helped. I tried to show how I did this, but I'm really sorry about the blurry pictures. I did all the sewing at night when my kiddos were sleeping. I'll try to get better pictures in the future. so here are the instruction's for this simple pillow cover.
I took this fabric color that I already had and really wanted to use. It really brightened up my livingroom. The white pillow cover was purchased at ikea for 3 dollars.
I left about an inch to each side to fold in and sew. Then I gave them a good ironing. Then I just folded the sides in and started to sew.
That's it not to hard, just a little bit of work holding the fabric down. This is my first time doing this, like I said. I think it turned out good. Not to bad, and the best thing of course is that I can take out the insert and wash the cover.
I also wanted to share a close up of my flowers that my husband planted for me. He knows I love flowers and he wanted me to enjoy them inside.
I really like how much more color it brought into my space. I'm ready for summer. Are you ready for summer? what are you doing to your space? comment I love to hear from you.
