New to sewing? Then this easy DIY project is for you – we’re sewing a simple and quick throw pillow cover with an envelope style closure at the back.
I decorated the front with iron-on transfers from Michaels Crafts and used pinking shears to finish the seams and help prevent the fabric from fraying.
Total cost to make this pillow cover + purchase the down-filled insert was approximately $12 – so this is a budget and beginner-friendly DIY – perfect for home decor or as a gift.
