DIY Tucked Pillow Cover

My good friend and I were shopping at Joann the other day and she was on the hunt for all things Christmas for her porch! They have some darling pillows but there just weren’t any she fell in love with for the occasion. Joann was having a sale on flannel and they had the cutest patterns so we decided we would make them for her!

She had some 20″ pillows from Ikea and so we knew we would need the pillow covers to fit over that size. I got 1 yard of flannel per pillow so the total for these two pillow covers was about $7! The best part is I can make more covers for every occasion and just slip them on over the forms.

This tutorial is a no fail way to make your own pillows that don't need to be fluffed!

What you need for your tucked pillow cover
  • 1 yard of fabric
  • Thread
  • Pillow form
  • Scissors

Cut out 1 21″x21″ square of fabric and 2 12″x21″ pieces.

If you have a decorative pillow addiction, let's save you some closet space and create slip covers for you so you can use and reuse them!Take your 2 12″x21″ pieces and sew one of the 21″ sides down so it has a nice finished edge. These are the finished edges where you will insert your pillow.

If you have a decorative pillow addiction, let's save you some closet space and create slip covers for you so you can use and reuse them!Place the two pieces with the right side against the 21″x21″ square’s right side.

Next you will pin these three pieces together so you can sew a full square around the outer edge.

Then you will sew a triangle along the side. This will create the tuck on the side. This little tuck makes your pillow look permanently fluffed. I kind of love it!

You will flip it right side out now, and fill it with your pillow!

Isn’t that so simple? I did two pillows in probably 20 minutes flat. Doesn’t get much better than that! Don’t they look so cute on my friend’s front porch? She did this entire porch using things from Joann!
