First, measure around your pillow form. I left about an inch around each side. This is more because Iím not totally proficient at the sewing machine. Giving myself some extra room just in case my stitches arenít straight insures that the pillow covers will fit.

Second, cut two pieces of fabric for the front and back of the pillow cover. I cut the second piece slightly larger than the first, so that it would still be the same size after hemming the cut edges. Cut the larger piece in half. This will be the back ďenvelopeĒ part of your slip cover.

Third, iron down the sides that you will add the hem to. Then hem/serge with a stitch that you are comfortable using on your machine.

Fourth, pin these pieces to the other larger side piece. Make sure you do this inside out! I accidentally sewed an entire pillow, only to remember I didnít put the pieces inside out so half had the inner part of the fabric showing. What a pain to take out all those stitches! After sewing around the edges, flip your fabric right side out and cover your pillow form. Ta-da!
