I have had this extra large pillow since I was in high school. Because of its unusual size (23×23), we can’t find extra pillow cases for it anywhere. When I was younger, I thought this pillow looks sosy because of its velvet cover. Now, I just find it so 90’s. My first sewing project will give this boring pillow a makeover.
First step is getting the measurement.
Next I bought colorful canvass cloth from Cotton Depot in Glorietta 5. One yard costs pesos 120. For this project, I only got 3/4 of yard. The needle set and thread are from Carolina’s.
I sewed the sides using back stitch.
After sewing the sides, I wrapped the cloth around the pillow and used safety pins to mark the areas that were to be sewn together.
Sew sew sew and I am done!
