I needed a little change on our bed so I decided to make a pillow from some leftover scraps I had. It’s no surprise, I adore white and all shades of it. I love the changes in texture of this pillow. Here’s what I did. I cut a euro sham sized pieces (26×26 completed, so add a little extra) of fabric. I got lots of different strips of fabric and pinned them to the pillow, overlapping them slightly.
Continue all along the pillowcase.
Next what I did was sew the opposit way, like a grid. I alternated the direction I was going to it would create even more texture. It created little folds of the edge of the fabric.
For the back, cut out two pieces, one slightly longer than the other. After topstitching the edges, place them, on top of the cover of your sham, right side down. Make sure one lays over the other about two inches. Then stitch the pillow all the way around.
Here’s the finished pillow.
I love all the texture in it and how it brings in all the different shades of white that were already on my bed.
You could do this with so many different colors and it’s a great way to use extra fabric!
Have a beautiful weekend!
