How to sew an envelope pillow cover!


Step 3: How to measure your pillow!

Picture of How to measure your pillow!
This is dead easy if your pillow has a cover.

Covered pillow:
  • take cover off, measure across and down!
  • add an inch to each of these measurements!

Uncovered pillow or pillow form:
  • use your measuring tape to conform to the curve of the pillow and take the measurements.
  • add an inch to each of these measurements!

In this example, I'm using a covered pillow, but the cover is awful bumpy thanks to the cording around the edges. So I took measurements both ways and compared. Better safe than sorry!

My pillow is 18X18, so I'll be adding an inch to that!
