You will need:
A pillow that needs recovered
Fabric (I used approx. 3/4 yard for a 19×19″ pillow)
A sewing machine and coordinating thread
1st- You need to measure your pillow. Mine was 19×19.
2nd – Cut your fabric into three pieces. I cut one 19×19″ for the front, and two 14×19″ for the back.
Note* no matter what the size of your pillow be sure to make the length of the two back pieces of the pillow 5 inches shorter than the front piece.
3rd – You will do a 1/4″ – 1/2″ hem on ONE of the 19″ sides of the 14×19″ fabric pieces
3rd- Place the right side (print side) facing in, imagine the pillow cover turned inside out. Pin the edge of the back pieces to the front piece of the pillow.
4th- Sew around the edges of the fabric you have pinned together.
5th- Now you can turn it right side out, and stuff your old pillow in.
Look how wonderful your pillow looks now. This is a great project for beginner sewers as well. It’s so simple you will want to cover every pillow in your house.
