I started with pillows that I already had on hand and they were about 19 x 19 and one yard of fabric.
I laid out the fabric and put the pillow in the middle.
Folded the fabric over on the top and bottom.
I used safety pins to attach. These pillows are going on a bench to basically just add a pop of color. If I were using them on a couch I WOULD NOT use safety pins. You could either use more fabric or use stitch witchery and iron the fabric together and slip the pillow in.
Grab the ends and fold in ...kind of like a diaper.
Pull each side in to the midle
Tie into a knot. I didn't have enough fabric to make a double knot so I went with just one and I love it.
The original blog shows the pillow turned around but I love it with the knot showing.
This is the final product.
