Pillow cover (or follow tutorial below to make one)
1/2 to 1 yard of choice color fabric
Step 1: Cut your fabric into strips about 1/2 inch to an 1 inch wide. Doesn't matter if it's straight and perfect.
Step 4: When your strip runs out, just glue the end into place...
Step 6: When the rosette gets larger, you'll start running into edges. Just fold the edges back over itself and start the next row, as you see below:
Here's a quick tutorial on how to make your own pillow cover. I have my super easy 10 minute pillow cover (click here) that uses the same fabric on both the back and front. But sometimes you only have a little bit of fabric and you don't have enough to use it on the back. This is when this tutorial comes in. All you need is your piece of fabric, cut it to 18 inches square and a piece of muslin that is 18x24 inches (the 24 inches can be a few inches longer if you want). If your pillow form is super plush, you may want to add an inch or two so instead of 18 inches do 19 inches. I like my pillows to be pretty full looking so I make the cases a bit smaller. This case covers an 18 inch pillow.
Cut the muslin in half and fold down one 18 inch edge on each piece and stitch into place. The fold should be about 1 inch wide.
