I was in Ikea the other day and came across a set of adorable kitchen towels. Four of them, all made of ticking/toweling style fabric (which I LOVE!), and all of them big enough to use in a pillow-cover. Add to that the $4.00 price tag, and I was in! Now I can show you how to make $2 Farmhouse Style Pillow Covers!
A while back I posted tutorials for making an envelope style pillow cover, and a tie-on style pillow cover. We will be using the ENVELOPE STYLE PILLOW COVER tutorial for this pillow.
The towel set uses all four of the towels to make 2 pillow covers. I found them in both blue and green, and I choose blue. You will need two of the towels for one cover, and two for the other. First you will need to pick which of the two towels you want on the front of your pillows. I picked the checks and the thick stripes for my fronts. Then I added the stripes to the striped front, and the large grid to the checked front.
You can mix them up any way you choose.
Steps one through three in the tutorial focus on adding a hem to the two back pieces, but if you cut carefully you can use the edges that are already hemmed. So that puts you a couple of steps ahead of the game!
Once you have these cut out the project will take you about 15 minutes. It’s easy-peasy and quick! And I think you all know that is how I like my projects to be!
Is it me or do you get stuck in Ikea also? It’s like a home decor vortex that I have a hard time leaving. It’s all so lovely and affordable.
Coming up soon I will show my craft room/office makeover. I loaded up a truck with boxes and boxes of shelves and I can’t wait to get them done. Anyone want to come help me figure out how to put them together?
I hope you enjoy $2 Farmhouse Pillow Covers: A Tutorial!
Have a lovely day!
