Well, (if my plan goes to ahem... plan) I'll not be able to have an envelope opening, and I can't to button holes by hand nor with my manual sewing machine... I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing, I'm not a confident sewer but couldn't see crochet fitting in well with my themes and ideas. I'm hoping when I make my mock pillow the closure solution will just jump out at me Cheesy

I wonder if twill snap tape would work then? Just a random idea! (I think thats what its called! its twill ribbon with snaps in it. sew one to one side and the other to the other)

I was going to recomend a strip of velcro... I used it a lot way back when I was scared of zippers and button holes.... I even used to sew buttons on to make it look like it really buttoned.....and as canamharris said,... Just a random thought

Or just use snaps without the tape? Or ties? Or button loops? Or loops laced up like you would a shoe? There's also buttonhole elastic...I know it's mostly used in waistbands, but there's lots of other uses for it. Not sure how it would work for something like this... I've also seen button-down shirts salvaged just for the buttonholed and button parts. Can save so much time.
 
Just some more random thoughts. Smiley

What sorts of closures are you guys doing for your pillows? That's just the last bit that I need to decide on for my partners Smiley

*Spoiler* scarlet_nights, don't look  Smiley

The rest of you can highlight the redacted bit below  Cheesy

I did frogs with a regular-old envelope closure.

Hey, look, we still have hearts  Grin

Fabric, time and inspiration aligned and I'm done  Smiley It kept evolving while I was working on it, but I actually like it better than what was in my head (which is very lucky for my mischievous sewing machines. Yes, plural. Elna won the contract over Singer who is now on my bad list  Tongue )

Now to play with my new camera and have a photo shoot with Miss Cover before saying goodbye!

I don't really have a preference as to what I get, but I know what I'll make will involve sewing. I can't knit or crochet to save my life. Well, okay, I guess I could as long as you aren't picky about the stitch or if you actually get a pillow cover (my squares and rectangles have a habit of turning out triangular).
