throw pillow cover for this project. You need one yard of fabric, a hard ruler, a rotary cutter, a cutting mat, a sewing machine and a needle and thread cut two squares of fabrics of the same dimensions as your pillow insert. I find this gives the pillow a really nice full fluffy look layer. The fabric right sides together, align and pin the corners and the edges of your fabric squares, so I pin all four corners and then I put one or two pins on the sides. Next, sew around the perimeter of the cover using a half inch seam allowance. If you don't have a sewing machine, you could also use fabric glue, leave an opening at least 10 inches long on one side trim the corners at an angle and cut off any loose threads trimming.
The corners help give your pillow corners a nice crisp. Look next turn the pillow cover right side out push the corners out with your finger or a knitting needle next grab. Your pillow insert mine is a 20 by 20 inch down pillow, insert and stuff the pillow form inside the pillow cover aligning all the corners make sure your form is evenly stuffed into the pillowcase and give it a nice left next sew.
The opening of the pillow shot like this, so I use an invisible hand stitch and what this does is it helps the seam look invisible from the outside, so I thread whiny little needle with double thread, put a knot in it and then put one side of the needle into one side of the pillow form opening and then take a small portion from the other side. Go back to the first type side. Take a little bit then go to the other side and continue on like this when you're finished tie a double knot. At the end to secure so, if you're using fabric glue instead, you can also sew your whole shop like this, and that's it you're done. You can wash your pillow with the insert inside all together in the washing machine.
