    This is such a wonderful idea, but I find the instructions challenging to follow. I’m a visual learner. Any possibility you could do a video so we could watch how to make it? Thanks for all of your incredible ideas!

    You’ve taught me so much on this blog! Thank you, Yvonne! Very inspiring. ?

  3. I’d like to try making pillow cases but I find the instructions hard to follow. A video accompanying the detailed instructions would help it make sense to a non crafter.

    Yvonne I love this! Once I get moved into my new house i am going to try this. Can this be done for pillow shams?

    1. Give it a try. I don’t know why it would not work. Use cheap or extra material (like an old curtain, lol) you have at home first. If it works please send pictures.

  5. So clever. Sewing is so fast but my machine wore out long ago. This is a great idea.

  6. I love this as I do not sew but have a hot glue gun that needs put to good use. I recently started following your blog and could spend hours looking at all your wonderful ideas! You have such an amazing God given talent and you shine with the love of Jesus! Thanks for all your inspirational and encouraging posts! I LOVE your blog!!

    So very ingenious! I would never have thought to do this. Great post. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Very interesting post! What an awesome idea for a non-sewer, like me. Thanks for sharing the design details.

  9. Why didn’t I think of that? My daughter and I found a beautiful runner at Home Goods with embroidered pumpkins on the ends. Turned it into 2 gorgeous pillows that needed to be hand stitched to close the one end with fringe. Had to use a thimble to get the needle through , as too thick and awkward for machine sewing. Well worth it and so inexpensive. Next time….glue. Thank you, Yvonne.

    1. Oh, I just might have to look for a pretty table runner too! Thanks for the idea, Jane

  10. Your pillows are beautiful. I have bought beautiful placemats from a discount store. You have to make sure you can feel that the material is 2 ply by pulling the middle apart. Take a seam ripper and open one end. You will have to use a smaller pillow insert than you have in your picture. I sew up the end and have an easy pillow! I also use pillow shams to cover wicker furniture cushions! It is fun to change cushions and pillows out for the seasons or to just change up your decor.

  11. Can you show the back of the pillow? Does the opening gap at all?

    1. This is great if you dont sew, but honestly, I think sewing would be quicker, following your method, and you know it would last. (My sewing machine is always set up)

      1. I think so too, but so many of my readers don’t sew and I wanted them to have a way to create beautiful pillows of their own.

    2. Not if you use the right insert. There is a nice big overlap in the back
