How to Turn Flower Seed Packets Into Pillows
- seed packets
- fabric sheers
- solid-color linen fabric
Scan vintage seed packets at a high resolution. Upload the images to spoonflower.com, following the site’s instructions, to create custom fabric.
Cut the fabric into 21-inch squares (one for each pillow cover) so the images are centered. Cut solid-color linen into 21-inch-by-15-inch pieces—you’ll need two for each pillow. At this point, you could bring the fabric and linen to a seamstress. Ask the pro to make envelope back pillow covers for 20-inch square inserts. If DIYing, continue to Step 3.
Hem one of the longer sides of each piece of linen.
Lay your custom fabric right side up. Place a piece of linen on top, right side down, so it covers the left side of the custom fabric, with the hem you made near the center. Repeat with a second piece of linen, but this time cover the right side of the custom fabric. Its hem should also be near the center—it will overlap the first piece of linen.
Pin all four sides, then sew them together about 5/8 inch from the edge. Turn the pillow cover right side out.
Stuff a 20-inch-square insert inside the overlapping fabric at the back.
