I asked many of you which was your favorite pillow in my master bedroom makeover and most of you chose this one.
I made a pintucked duvet cover for my daughters bedroom last year and thought I would use the same concept for a pillow cover to add texture to my room.
Here are the simple details…
First we’re going to start on the front piece of the pillow. My throw pillow is a 12×12, so I cute it size 18×18 so I would have room to sew after I did my pin tucks.
Now I eyeballed my pintucks but if you’re afraid they won’t be precise you can draw a diagram like this. Put the dots on the wrong side (back side) of the fabric.
Step 1. Grab a small piece of fabric where you drew your dot.
Step 2. Twist about one 1/2” inch.
Step 3. Pin to hold and you’ll sew a straight line right where the pin is.
Step 4. Repeat steps in a diamond pattern and you will start to see beautiful pin tucks!
Now you are ready to put your pillow cover together!
Cut your pintucked piece you just worked on size 14×14 inches for your front piece and two back pieces each 14×9 inches.
1. Grab one of the back pieces and fold & iron 1/2 inch down on one of the 28” sides.
2. Fold over another 1/2 inch and iron down.
3. Pin your iron fold to make it secure.
4. Sew a 1/4” inseam down the side.
Repeat steps 1-4 on the other back piece.
Next you will lay your back piece right side or also called patterned side facing up on your table.
Then you will lay your back pieces right side facing down like the picture above.
Pin all 4 outer sides and sew a 1/4” inseam on all 4 outer sides.
Flip right side out and stuff with your pillow and you’re finished!!
