Before - faded pillow
After: Springy new Chevron pillow
Like I said, there are actually two (somehow I didn't snap of a picture of him with his brother on the couch). I looked at several tutorials online, and my visual spatial self had quite the time with them. : ) I ended up creating my own.
You will need:
Cute fabric of your choice
adhesive velcro dots
Step 1: Cut fabric to fit the size of your pillow
Step 2: Cut a strip of stitch witchery (remove wrapping first; I learned this the hard way), and using the iron, seal one end of your pillow cover
Step 3: Apply stitch witchery down the middle seam, and iron again to seal shut.
Step 4: (not pictured) Turn pillow right side out once cooled. The bottom seam and middle seam are done. Insert pillow form in through the top opening of the pillow. Finally, fold over material at the top of the pillow and attach velcro dots, to close final seam (and allow for an opening to take this pillow form out when it is time for another change!)
