How To Sew An Envelope Pillow Cover

How To Sew An Envelope Pillow Cover Tutorial

An envelope closure is the easiest pillow closure. You don’t have to sew buttons or a zipper: Just fold the fabric, sew the sides together and you’ll have a beautiful pillow case! 😀

You’ll need:

  • fabric
  • pillow insert
  • thread
  • sewing machine

Measure your pillow. Cut a rectangle out of fabric, as wide as the pillow + seam allowances and as long as 2.5 x the pillow + seam allowances. E.g. if the pillow measures 10 x 10 inches, cut out a 11 x 26 inch rectangle.

Finish the short edges of the rectangle. Fold the fabric, as in the picture, so that there’s a slight overlap in the middle. Then sew both sides of the envelope pillow case and finish the raw edges with a zig zag stitch. Turn the pillow case inside out and your pillow cover is finshed!

I turned an old sweater into an envelope pillow cover, and here I made cute Easter bunny pillows.
