How to Make a Pillow Sham

Save

Using a pillow sham is a great way to jazz up a tired old pillow and make it really stand out as a decorative piece in your room. With some very basic sewing knowledge and a great fabric, you can give your pillow new life and style.

Things You'll Need

  • Fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle and thread
  • Measure the pillow you would like to cover.

  • Choose your desired fabric, along with any decorative trim or pieces you would like to use.

  • Fold the fabric in half, print side in.

  • Cut your fabric to size, leaving about 1-½ inch extra in all directions for the hem.

  • Use a sewing machine to sew a simple stitch from the fold of the fabric out along the two longest sides.

  • Cut off any excess along the edges.

  • Fold over your fabric along the bottom of your pillow sham to create the hem.

  • Sew along the hem, leaving your pillow sham open so you can slide a pillow into it.

  • Add any desired decorative pieces to your pillow using your sewing machine, or even fabric glue.

  • Turn your pillow sham right-side-out and slide your pillow inside.
