Pillow Sham

1. Pretty similar to basic pillow but Pillow Sham has a different measurement when cutting the fabric. For this design we will be using 2 back portions cut in the middle which is adjusted by 2 inches both. for this example we will be using 16 inches for the front .and 2 pieces of 10 by 16 inches at the back.

2. Iron one side by half an inch of the 2 pcs. of fabric that we’re gonna use at the back. this will serve as an opening for the pillow.

4.Stitch all three pieces together facing the same sides. Stitch it around this time since we won’t be needing an opening because the pillow would be inserted at the back portion of the pillow sham.
