A quick pillow cover project for a Star Wars themed bedroom or Star Wars fan. Create these envelope pillow covers so they may be removed and washed easily!

Materials:
Pillow form
Fabric to cover pillows
Coordinating thread
Sewing machine
Iron
Ink jet transfer sheets
Ink jet printer

Method:
Ensure your fabric and pillow forms are washed.
If you pillow has a cover, measure the cover and add width and length for seam allowance (1/4 to 1/2 inch).
If your pillow does not have a cover, measure across the curve of your pillow form, both width and length and add the seam allowance.
Cut one piece of fabric of your desired width and length for the front.
Cut two pieces of fabric for the back, allowing for overlap of about 1/4 the length of the pillow. This will allow you to make an envelope to put on your pillow.
Select your desired image on the computer and print it out on material transfer sheets. Avery makes all kinds, it just so happened I had white t-shirt ones left over from another project so that is what I used.

Follow the directions on the transfer sheet package. Most importantly, cut around the image you wish to transfer, ensure you are transferring to the correct material (mine were white t-shirt so I had to transfer to white cotton), and make sure you are using a hard surface to iron on (I use a glass cutting board covered in a towel).

Note that your image will be facing down to iron on!

As I had to transfer to white cotton, I need to applique my image onto the front piece of my pillow covers.

Sew the hems on the two back pieces of your pillow.



hem pillow backs

Lay down the front of your pillow cover and lay down the back pieces right sides facing the front of the pillow cover. Your back pieces should overlap about 1/4 the length of the pillow cover.
Sew around your pillow.
Turn your pillow cover right side out and fit your pillow form inside.

Back of the pillow before the pillow form is inserted.

Admire your handwork!
