Materials Needed

  • fabric in desired color and pattern
  • pillow form
  • scissors
  • measuring tape

Measure and Cut Fabric

Measure and cut fabric three times as wide and two times as high as the pillow form (Images 1 and 2).

Cover Pillow Form

Place form in the middle of the fabric piece, and fold over fabric in half to completely cover (Images 1 and 2). Fold remaining ends of fabric into a triangular shape on each side (Image 3).

Tie a Knot

Bring the triangular ends to the center of the pillow (Image 1), and tie a knot (Images 2 and 3). You can display the knot on the front, or turn the pillow over to hide it in the back (Image 4).
