[Sew Fun] Easy (and Festive) Envelope Pillow Cover

Staying with my resolution to finish twelve sewing projects in twelve months, I'm right on track!  Last week while the floors were being finished, I whipped up this two pillow covers to add to the family room St. Patrick's Day festiveness.   Seriously, these were so quick and easy to make!


I bought this fabric at ikea (Sofia).  I grabbed two yards for roughly $15 and its a nice hefty cotton, perfect for throw pillows that will take a beating.


I used this tutorial that I linked in my sewing project idea post and it really was so easy.  The hardest part was probably getting the fabric cut to the right length.  Of course, now I have grand ideas of making pillow covers for different seasons and holidays, but it's such an easy way to update a room.


I also used the left over scrap as a table runner of sorts and of course never took a picture, just some IGs of food on it.  If I don't make anything else out of the fabric, I'll go back and clean up the edges with some hems and reuse it next year too!


For those of you that sew, what's the easiest project you ever did?



Happy Friday, Friends!
