I changed the whole color scheme of my house so I needed to get new throw pillows for the couch and bed but really didn't have the money to spend on new ones. So I decided to buy some fabric and make my own cases to cover the old pillows. The only thing was my sewing machine broke. AGAIN. Sewing machine #2 bites the dust and keep in mind I've only been sewing for a couple of months. So enter the spur of the moment decision to get out the hot glue gun and yes hot glue throw pillows. I know it sounds insane. But understand I was so frustrated with sewing machines failing me that it was my last resort and it actually worked!
So here is what I did...1. Whatever size pillow you have you'll want to add an inch on all sides. So for my 18" x 18" pillows I cut 19" x 19" of fabric for the front piece of the pillow. For the back of the pillow you will need the same width but add 4" to the length. After you've cut out these measurements take the long piece and cut it in 1/2.
Nothing fancy. But simple and I like them.
Oh and make sure and wash and iron your fabric before you start. And you'll want to wash these pillow cases by hand and air dry.
