Easy Pillow Case Pillow

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,
      I found this adorable black and white polka dot pillow case at a thrift store awhile back, and snatched it up. The material was not like your average pillow case it was actually really soft and pretty. I was very excited to turn it into a regular pillow covering.
What you need for this project:
Pillow Form
Pillow Case
Sewing machine (or you can sew it by hand just as easily)
Measuring tape (I actually used a yard stick)
Two large buttons
Place the pillow form inside of the pillow case and pin so you can know where to sew.
Next take your yard stick and make a line where you just pinned so you know where to sew.
Sew the line you just marked
After you sew go ahead and cut off the extra fabric
Pin the pillow again so you know where to sew the pillow closed. Make sure you don't sew it closed completely so you can still put your pillow inside.
After you have it all sewed up begin the hard part of stuffing your pillow in your new pillow cover.
I used my sewing machine to stitch up the opening. 
For me once my pillow was all sewed up I went to my moms house and she used her handy dandy long upholstery needle to put in this large black button in the center of my pillow.
It is always so nice to put a new pillow on my couch. It cheers it up so much.
Happy Sewing my friends!
Pin It Now!
