A great way to get a customized look
without the need for sewing skills is to decorate a plain fabric pillow cover with purchased ribbon or decorator trim, available at any sewing or crafts store. Using a hot glue gun, craft or fabric glue, afix the ribbon trim to the pillow in a pattern or simply frame in the outer edges of the pillow. It’s a great look and couldn’t be any easier.
You can also create a simple fabric pillow cover by cutting two pieces of fabric to your pillow size plus 1” seam allowance all around. Use Stitch Witchery, a narrow fusible bonding web available at any sewing store, to adhere the two sides together within the seam allowance, leaving one of the ends open. Insert the pillow into the opening and then close up the opening with the Stitch Witchery. If you tire of the fabric cover, simply cut off and make a new cover.
