My in-laws have one of the cutest patio sets under their back awning. The four of us love to sit out there in the evenings, when hubby is home, for hours just chatting and telling stories. Its one of my favorite ways to spend an evening. Here’s the thing though, it might be a cute patio set, but it is certainly not a comfortable patio set! I decided to make some cute pillows to make our evening chats more comfortable! This adorable red white and blue pillow cover is just the first of the set I’m for them!
I combined to previous tutorials from my #101HandmadeDays series to make red white and blue pillow cover and its really a rather quick and easy project! Maybe 30 minutes at the most 🙂
The only difference is that you have to line the heart up on the center of the front section of the fabric for the envelope pillow cover. To make sure it was centered, I measured the fabric to find the front center and added pins to mark each corner. Then I centered the heart to those 4 pins.
I told you this was easy! And its perfect for the 4th of July! I’m thinking I might have to make a another more red white and blue pillow cover like this for the in-laws and then something a little more neutral for the rest of the year. 🙂
