  • Pillow form I used a 17″ pillow
  • Fabric half a yard will do for pillows 18″ and smaller


  • Cut the fabric. For a 17″ pillow you need a piece of fabric 17X38 inches big. For other sized pillows you need the fabric to be the size of the pillow side (in my case 17″) by the side times 2 plus 4 more inches. So for mine it was 17″ by (17X2)+4
  • Finish the short edges of the fabric.
  • Fold one side under and hem. This is for the side of the fabric that will show on the outside.
  • Fold the fabric in on both ends (right side of the fabric inside) so that there is a square the size of the pillow in the middle. For mine this means that I folded each end in 10.5″. There should be a couple of inches of overlap. Iron or pin in place.
  • Sew across the top and bottom.
  • Flip inside out and stuff the pillow into the pillow case.
