Free Tutorial Tuesday - How to Make An Envelope Pillow

Today’s free tutorial is instruction on how to make an envelope style pillow.  An envelope style pillow has a back that is in two pieces that overlap in the center.  The best way to stuff an envelope style pillow is with a pillow form.  Using fluff to stuff it could leak out through the gap in the back.  Or the gap in the back could be tempting to wandering fingers that mess with your fluff.

For a pillow top, you can use a quilt block, a decorative fabric, large scale print, segment from a panel, strip sets or anything else you desire.  The pillow top should be 1/2" larger (length and width) than your desired finished pillow size.

Pillow tops can be quilted if you desire, which would be a great way to practice your free motion quilting, or using some fun decorative stitches on your machine.

With the upcoming holidays, pillows are a great way to update or change your home décor or they make a great gift for that someone on your list that “has everything”!
