Take that retailer of choice!
Here's what I used:
- 1 yard of fabric (I had flannel)
- Sewing machine
- Marking pens
- Pattern paper (sheets of scrap taped together, high tech I know)
I traced around my pillow and measured the depth, coming up with a pattern. What I did not draw out was the 3"x25" strip of fabric I needed for the center curve.
The pattern is about 14" wide (from fold edge) and 20.5" tall.
I cut one solid piece and then for the back I cut it in two pieces. On the pattern I drew two dotted lines about 2" apart. This was for the closure of the pillow, I chose to do snap tape but you can also do a zipper.
The center curve needed about 3" of extra space for the fluffiness, seen here:
And one last picture because I think it turned out great (even though this was my first attempt)! That rarely ever happens so I thought I would pat myself on the back :)
This project, from tracing the pillow to finished product, took about 2 hours. Questions are welcome below!
