Cut one 22”x22” square and two 22” x 14” rectangles.

Apply Hemming Tape

On one 22" side of each rectangle, fold the edge in 1" and iron. Place the hemming tape inside the fold and iron again, creating a creased edge. Both rectangles should now have one edge folded in and ironed.

On one 22” side of each rectangle, fold the edge in 1” and iron. Place the hemming tape inside of the fold and iron again, creating a nice creased edge. Both rectangles should have one edge folded in and ironed.

Line Up Edges

Place the square face up on the table. Put one rectangle face down over the square with the folded edge in the center of the square and the left edges lined up. Put the other rectangle face down over the first with the folded edge in the middle of the square and the right edge lined up with the right edge of the square.

Attach Edges

Use the hemming tape to iron all four edges together. Put a strip of hemming tape in-between both layers of fabric against the edge. Press with an iron for a few seconds. Continue around the square until all the edges are "hemmed" with tape. Let cool.

Insert Pillow Form

Turn the pillow right side out through the center opening. Insert your pillow form. You've just made a no-sew pillow cover!

Style

Use your brand-new bold and colorful pillow to add summer style to your home in the most unexpected spaces — even your home office.
