A pillow has a lot to go through in its life… what with being sat on, hugged in a sad movie, hidden behind during a horror film and fought with by the kids! It’s no wonder that they start to get a bit jaded and frayed around the edges. It’s time to throw them out and go shopping for some more… Or, you could sew some covers for them matching the new curtains you made or the latest trends in interior design.
Learn how to sew a pillow by watching this easy-to-follow video, which covers (pun intended!) two different and equally simple ways to bring your pillow back to life. Both of the methods demonstrated are very easy to follow, with not a zipper or button in sight. This is a strait forward sewing project for a beginner and can be completed in one afternoon.
How to sew a Throw Pillow
The first technique shown is how to sew a pillow with a closed cover. All you need is two squares of fabric, some pins and a sewing machine. In almost as much time as it takes to watch the video, you can complete your sewing project. Cut the back and front panels from different materials and you instantly have a reversible pillow.
How to sew a Pillow Sham Cover
The second method demonstrated, which is only slightly more complicated than the first technique, is to make a removable cover – known as a pillow sham. The front is the same but the back has a large pocket, or flap, through which you can easily insert your pillow. A pillow sham is the practical choice if you want to wash your pillows often. And if you sew several pillow shams, then you can also change the décor of your room whenever the whim takes you.
By learning how to sew a pillow, you will be able to transform your household interior to suit your own creative character. Your pillow need never be stale and jaded again – which is good to know when you are hiding behind it during the movie’s scary bits!
