Put the pillowcase inside out through the opening on the fourth side. Push out the corners to get them as pointy as you can. Flatten out the pillowcase and fold in the edges of the opening on the fourth side so that they line up with the parts you‘ve already sewn shut. Iron the folded-in opening flat so that it will be easier to sew closed later.
The first thing you’ll want to do is think about what color and type of fabric you want to use. Look at your other room decor and take into consideration the overall color scheme. Do you want your pillows to complement what you already have or stand out as a bold accent?
When you begin sewing, remember to position your stitches about a half inch from the edge of the fabric. When you reach the end of a length of thread, make the smallest stitch you can and pass your needle through the loop before pulling the thread all the way through. Sew three sides of your pillow all the way, but only sew 2-3 inches on each end of the fourth side. (You will probably need to re-thread your needle multiple times). This will leave you an opening to insert the pillow form or stuffing. Remove the pins. Snip off a little of each corner of your pillowcase, being careful not to cut your stitches, so that the fabric won‘t bunch up when you turn it inside out.
