Last night I used my yard of Sweet Savannah in Turquoise by Etsuko Furuya to make covers for two pillows. The fabric is a linen cotton blend and much nicer than I expected from looking at the pictures  online. My first time making pillows and I decided to use the most fancy and expensive fabric I own. Craftastic!

When measuring I discovered I could do both pillows only if I did simple non removable covers. I guess I could have used zippers but company is coming today and I didn’t have any! I did the larger square pillow first by sewing the front and back piece together. For the rectangle pillow, I used one continuous piece because I was conveniently left with the (mostly) correct size.  I finally learn how to close up by hand with a hidden stitch! Now I will be able to finish the bindings on my quilts without visible stitches.

Here they are:

In the future I would probably use fuller pillow forms and work on getting the corners nice and square. Or maybe not, if I am fast crafting.
