5 Minute Pillow Cover Hack - Tutorial

This post contains affiliate links.

When decorating my home, I know one of the easiest ways to change it up a bit is adding new throw pillows. When changing things up as much as I do, it can get expensive :) Also, buying full throw pillows take up a lot of space when not in use. So, in order to save money and space, I learned some quick tips..or hacks, over the years to make my own DIY throw pillow covers. 

Below is about a 1:30 video on how I make two 18-20" throw pillow covers from 1 1/2 yard of 54" fabric. I can do one of these in under 5 minutes, probably could do two if I tried hard enough! Which means....they are so easy, if I can do them, you can too! 

You can even skip the sewing part and use hemming tape instead...bonus! My favorite kind is here:

I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby. I loved the vintage/english print on it. I loved this so much, I have made 4 to place in other rooms in my house.

 ( I guess back in the day it took me 10 minutes, but I timed it this time for 5!
