DIY Pillow Cover 3 Step Tutorial
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 DIY pillow cover 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 🙂

DIY Throw Pillow Cover Instructions

Throw Pillow Cover Step 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.

Throw Pillow Cover Step 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).

  1. adorable!!! LOVE the fabric. I will have to try the zipper… I usually do the pocket, but they don’t always look so great… the pillow oozes out sometimes… yours is beautiful!

  2. That is so cute! I am getting a sewing machine for Christmas and I cannot wait to use this tutorial to make some pillows for our couch! Thanks for posting!
