This month the DCC Designer Craft Connections Blog Hop is all about Celebrations!
For my US friends July 4th is the big day this week and for us Canadians July 1st today
is Canada Day!
At the B&B we are all about celebrating every holiday, the front porch which greets
our guests is always the first place to start the celebrations! I made some super
easy and speedy pillow covers from a package of Canada Day tea towels.
At a local bedding shop I picked up a package of six Canada Day dish towels for $12!
Their width was exactly the pillow size width I was covering!
How to! Measure pillow form, I recovered existing 14" pillows. Cut front pillow piece
leaving 1/2" seam allowance. Cut from second towel two pieces for back from each end of towel,
towel width and 9" in length. Overlap the back pieces with finished edges as the overlap.
Place right sides together with front, Pin and sew all four sides.
Trim and turn through the center overlap opening.
Insert pillow, that is it! Less than an hour for four pillows!
I made pillow wraps for the
pillows below by measuring around the pillow. Cut the towel excess off leaving 1" for seam.
Fold right sides together, sew or if you don't sew use a fabric glue like Fabri-tac by Beacon.
Turn right side out and slide on pillow, easy peasy!
Happy Canada Day!
