Make Your Own Pillow Covers

Changing Out Pillow Covers Was One Item Mentioned to Give Your Home a Fresh New Look & Feel for 2020

So wanted to share these free directions to create slip on pillow covers.


Free Directions to Sew Envelope Pillow Covers

By Debbie Colgrove  |   Updated 11/20/19   |


These step-by-step directions are designed to save you the expense of new pillows. The envelope design of these pillow covers makes them

removable slipcovers for your throw pillows. Always preshrink your fabric so that your finished pillow covers stay the same size after washing.

 Materials needed

Fabric needed for standard sizes

12-inch pillow: Fabric 12x28 inches

14-inch pillow: Fabric 14x32 inches

16-inch pillow: Fabric 16x36 inches

18-inch pillow: Fabric 18x40 inches


Sewing machine

Measuring tools

Note: The cutting directions do not add a seam allowance so that the finished pillow cover is a little smaller than the form and creates a "plump" pillow with no space.

***NOTE - Great way to use clothing that you no longer wear or make a special cover out of a loved ones past clothing.
