Another favorite version of pillow covers that I like to DIY for decorating is the envelope style. If you missed yesterday’s post here is a link to the zipper pillow cover tutorial. This simple envelope style cover is made from three pieces of fabric where two are overlapping, to make an easy insertion and removal of the pillow form. As you can see in my photos, both of the versions I am showing you have extra detail beyond the three pieces of fabric. The black and tan linen pillow I made a few years ago with a iron-on transfer and black piping. The piping was added to the fabric edge before sewing the front and back pieces together. The floral pillow is something I made today for this tutorial, and for my bedroom. . . which you will see in a full tour later this week. I show you in the tutorial below how to make the basic envelope cover and how you might add buttons and loops for details. The aqua pintuck bedding that I purchased from West Elm includes the large euro pillow covers which are also simple envelope construction. This is a great option for a bed where the pillows are more decorative and less used and where a zipper may not be as soft as you like. Now that we have finished sewing the pillows, let’s move onto the curtains. . . tomorrow. Cheers! ~ Lia
