Star Wars Pillow Cover

Star Wars Pillow Cover

Posted 2015-07-27 by Janinefollow
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!

  • 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.

  • 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!
