Pillow covers are a great way to switch up your home decor for holidays. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to make this adorable DIY Easter pillow cover for your home. I made pillow covers for 18-inch pillow forms that are perfect on chairs or couch. Switch them out for plain pillow covers or other seasonal pillow covers to suit your mood!
It’s super easy to make a pillow cover for an 18-inch pillow form. All you need is half yard of fabric that is at least 45-inches wide. Fold the fabric to center the front, sew the top and bottom seams and you’ve got a reusable pillow cover.
For this DIY Easter pillow cover, I made a strip set of spring colored fabrics, cut and fused egg shapes to the front of the pillow covers. Then I stitched all around the edge of the egg shape with a decorative stitch. Learn tips about working with fusible web in our article Fusible Web: What it is and How to Use It.
Other ideas include adding rows of rick rack trim to the strip set egg shapes. Or stitching between the rows of fabric with decorative stitches on your machine. How about adding some hand embroidery? The ideas are limitless to make these pillows your own.
Here are the pillows in different places in our home.
