How-to: Make a Self-Welted Envelope Pillow Cover

I love sewing. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s in my blood. When sewing for profit, I found ways to get the look my clients wanted, without taking the extra time they often took.  This not only saved them money, but it saved me time. Anyone that’s worked for themselves, knows how important that is.

The Pillow:making of a decorative pillow slipcover 026 800

My first client was a Grandma-to-be for the first time. Her daughter was expecting twin girls.  I was sewing everything for their nursery except the sheets. Included was two decorative pillows. Grandma wanted each pillow cover to be washable and have large welting. For easy removal I made them in the popular envelope style where the back opens via overlapped sections.

Follow along and you’ll see my version of making welted pillows. They are easy to make and save you time too.
