The patriotic day is just around the corner and I just kept aside all my other sewing projects and decided to sew something for the Patriotic day instead. This is a super easy and super quick DIY pillow cover that any beginner can sew.
It is a simple pillow cover design, accentuated by a few lines of red and blue lace. You can always replace the lace with rick racks or pompom lace in the same color. You can make slight changes like adding fabric flowers in red and blue to the corner to make it more ornamental
So let’s get started right away
If you would like to make a hoop wreath for Patriotic day, click on the picture below:
Medium-weight white cotton fabric- 1/2 yard.
Red and blue lace- 2.5 yards each.
Front piece- 17” x 17”
Back piece- 17” x 11”
The above measurements are for a pillow with 16” x 16” dimensions. For a smaller or larger pillow, you can cut the pieces, referring to the directions below:
Front piece Length- Length of the pillow + 1- inch.
Front Piece Width- Width of the pillow + 1- inch.
Back Pieces Length- Length of the pillow/ 2 + 4-inches.
Back Pieces Width- Width of the pillow + 1- inch.
Let’s attach the lace to the front piece.
We need to hem one of the edges of the back pieces.
Let’s join the front piece and the back pieces together.
