Finally, my new rug has arrived and I love it …So now I’m adding the final touches to my family room.
I need some throw pillows and accessories. HomeGoods here I come…But whenever you have something specific in your mind it will be impossible to find it. I found instead an Apron that I liked and 4 Napkins.
So I took out my sewing machine and sewed this simple and easy envelope pillows after I searched the net for so long to find an easy tutorial below is my way of this easy tutorial. ( If you don’t know how to sew you can easily make this pillow by using steam-a-seam tape, I bought it from Joann Fabric and it worked great) you can check out my no-sew yellow pillow here.
I know we all hate maths but sometimes all these classes that we took when we were kids are helpful in real life lol so below is a simple illustration of what I did to have an easy simple pretty throw pillow.
Take the Length (L) and the Width (W) to an old pillow. So let’s say L=10 and W=10
A: Cut your fabric adding one inch at both the L and W ( for the seam). We should cut the fabric 11 inch by 11 inch
B: Then cut another piece of fabric, the Width (W) is the same W+ 1 inch, but the Length is by dividing the L by 2 then add 4 inches. We should cut the fabric 11 inch by 9 inches.
C: is the same as B.
I hope I was clear and I didn’t confuse you with my EASY throw pillow :). So now all you have to do is sewing all these 3 fabrics, and make sure the pretty sides of the 3 fabric are facing each other.
And if it was easy for your to understand my tutorial please check out this youtube video.
And now let me show you the final results, I hope you like them:
