I LOVE outdoor pillows! They add a lot to any outdoor space. The problem is that they are so expensive. I decided to make my own Outdoor Pillow Slipcovers. I am telling you- they are SO easy that you will go crazy making all sorts of outdoor pillows!
I used Outdoor Canvas that I bought at Joann's for the fabric. Joann's actually has a pretty large selection of Outdoor Material. When I saw this orange fabric, I couldn't resist it! I did not want to spend a lot of money on these pillows, so I went to Goodwill and picked up some pillows that were in good shape.
They were $1-2 a piece. These pillows are all about 17in x 17in .
I bought one yard of fabric- one yard made 3 pillow covers. I cut the material at 18 in x 36 in.
You hem both of the 18 inch sides.
Next, I laid out the material so the sides are over laping about 1 inch and pinned it on both sides. Make sure the right sides are together.
I then stitched up both of the sides and turned the material out.
Now, I stuffed the pillow in the cover.
You can leave the pillow just like this, but I wanted a little extra feature. So I stitched on some wooden buttons that I won from a giveaway a while ago.
You are DONE!
These pillows cost me about $4 per pillow (the outdoor canvas is more expensive than regular material).
I LOVE THEM!
