10 Minute Pillowcase Tutorial with Video

affiliate disclosure

Throw pillows are one of the easiest ways to update the look of a room and they couldn’t be easier to make. Today I’m sharing a 10 minute pillowcase tutorial.

Just made a bunch of these. Great video tutorial for fast pillowcases. Perfect for DIY home decor. Also how to figure out how much fabric you need for throw pillow covers.

I made the ones photographed here in about 10 minutes total. Yup that’s for ALL of them. These darling pillowcases are that fast and that easy to make. All that is required is a few straight lines of sewing so this is a really great project for beginners.

Desert Bloom fabric projects including easy DIY pillowcases

For these pillowcases I used a bunch of the fabrics from the awesome Desert Bloom fabric line by Amanda Herring for Riley Blake Designs. I fell in love with the Desert Medallion print so I used that in gray and white.

I’m such a sucker for text fabrics I needed one in the Dessert Text in gray and I actually have been using it in my “library” and it goes perfectly with my other bookish pillowcases that I made!

I also made myself a Sorbetto top out of the Desert Medallion Red with the Dessert Blue Hexies for the binding because you know matching your throw pillows is totally what cool people do ;)
