I want to sew pillow covers.

A pillow cover is a great project, even for a beginner. Woven fabrics with little stretch are the easiest to use. Your local craft store has patterns to assist you with a design. To develop your own designs, take careful measurements and provide for seam allowances.

This is the easiest project for someone who is new to sewing. One thing to remember is to pin together the sides and sew on the wrong side.

Choose a firm fabric. Mark the fabric to cut so that any pattern is centered. Stitch around all but one side, turn, press, insert pillow and hand stitch the opening.
