You’ll Need

  • Fabric
  • Iron
  • Scissors

  • Pillow, one you already own or an insert

 

The Easiest "No Sew" Pillow Cover Ever | Dreamery EventsMeasure your piece of fabric so that it’s the width of your pillow insert plus 1″and double the length plus 12″. Use pins to mark then cut.The Easiest "No Sew" Pillow Cover Ever | Dreamery EventsMaking sure the fabric is inside out, with the printed side facing up, fold the ends over each other. Once folded, your fabric should be the exact length of your pillow. To create a cleaner look once your pillow cover is done, make a seam by cutting two pieces of iron-on hem the size of the short ends of the fabric {this will be the edges that are folded over each other to create the opening you stuff your pillow}.

Fold the seam over the iron-on hem, press with iron to adhere and secure. Repeat on the other edge. Make sure your fabric remains inside out and folded over itself to the exact size of the pillow before continuing.

Measure and cut the iron-on hem to fit your open sides. Place the iron-on hem in, between the top and bottom layers of fabric, close to the edge. Press with the iron as the package suggests, to secure in place. Repeat on the other side. Allow to cool slightly. {This simple video shows you exactly what I’m describing}

Turn the pillow cover right side out, then stuff your pillow through the flap.
