Do you use pillow form inserts? They are a great way to make decorative pillows.
Decorative Pillows are a very easy way to jazz up your space. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors and price points. But don’t let the price tags scare you off. With a few simple stitches you can create your own decorative pillows that will have your space up to date with all the latest trends.
One of the things I like to do is create simple pillow forms. With a quick slip cover, these pillow forms can be changed out over and over again with the latest and greatest fabric trends. I know that by having the form in hand, a new pillow is just minutes away.
Easy Pillow Form Inserts
This project is for all levels.
Skill Level- 1 Button
You will need the following materials to create your pillow forms:
- light-colored fabric (I suggest cotton)
- Determine the size of your form. Below you will find a quick cheat sheet of standard pillow sizes.
- Measure and cut your fabric to size adding seam allowance.
- Pin fabric wrong sides together and stitch 3 sides together. *Note that I am using a serger.
- Fill pillow insert with stuffing and stitch the last side closed.
How simple was that??? I have pillow forms in several different sizes and shapes. This way, when a decorating need arises, I can just pull one out and create a quick pillow cover. This has come in handy when making over the girls room and always the day before a party. I have been known to whip up new things the day of an event and I always love the buzz it creates when guests walk in.
Once you have your pillow inserts made, it’s time to whip up a few covers. Here are a few methods to get you started.
