Have a room that needs a quick face lift? Liven things up with some new toss pillows!
And since you can get these done in 3 steps and with less than 1 yard of fabric it’s quick and budget friendly too 🙂
***I bought my super cute fabric at Cotton Blossom Farm– make sure you remember to enter the giveaway!
Since our kiddos are sharing a room I’m trying to add a few more boyish items. I thought about doing something fancier with my pillow and then I decided that the fabric was so cute I would just leave it alone and I’m glad I did. This seriously took 10 minutes
And I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the zipper was to put in and love how professional looking it is. I’ve tried the envelope style pillow covers and with a toddler in our house they’re always getting pulled off. Luckily she hasn’t found this zipper yet 🙂
1. Measure your pillow and cut 2 squares to 1″ bigger than your measurement (assuming a 1/2″ seam allowance). With your zipper face down sew one edge of the zipper to one edge of the pillow cover.
2. Take your 2nd pillow cover piece and sew one edge to the other side of the zipper. It will look like this when you’re finished
3. Fold the cover in half so right sides are together and sew up the remaining 3 edges. Make sure the zipper is part way open. Turn right side out and zip your pillow in and you’re all set!
Now the only problem is keeping it on the rocking chair. Someone keeps wandering off with it to use as a bed for Cosmo (BYU’s mascot)
I think he looks pretty cozy 🙂
