- Easy Throw Pillow

Finally my new rug has arrived and I love it ...So now  I'm adding the final touches to my family room.
I need some throw pillows and accessories. HomeGoods here I come...But whenever you have something specific in your mind it will be impossible to find it. I found instead an Apron that I liked and 4 Napkins.

So I took out my sewing machine, and sewed this simple and easy envelope pillows after I searched the net for so long to find an easy tutorial below is my way of this easy tutorial. ( If you dont know how to sew you can easily make this pillow by using steam-a-seam tape , I bought it from Joann Fabric and it worked great) you can check out my no sew yellow pillow here.

I know we all hate maths but sometimes all these classes that we took when we were kids are helpful in real life lol so below is a simple illustration of what I did to have an easy simple pretty throw pillow.

Take the Lengh (L) and the Width (W) to an old pillow. So let's say L=10 and W=10

A: Cut your fabric adding one inch at both the L and W ( for the seam). We should cut the fabric 11 inch by 11 inch

B: Then cut another piece of fabric, the Width (W) is the same W+ 1 inch , but the Lengh is by dividing the L by 2 then adding 4 inch. We should cut the fabric 11 inch by 9 inch.

C: is the same as B.

I hope I was clear   and I didnt confuse you with my EASY throw pillow :). So now all you have to do is sewing all these 3 fabrics, and make sure the pretty sides of the 3 fabric are facing each other.

And if it was easy for your to understand my tutorial please check out this youtube video .

And now let me show you the final results, I hope you like them:

Do you like the pocket?

So the family room reveal should be coming soon :)

  5. Awww, so cute!! I love them!! curious, using no-sew tape, (which is how I do ALL my sewing!;) ), does it hold together okay for a pillow if you had, say, a couple kids throwing them around? I'm wondering if it would be worth the effort for me!
