Easy to Stitch Envelope Cushion Covers

This decorative envelope style cushion covers are easy to sew and can be made within 15 minutes or less. I find it easier to stitch cushion covers than look for something that goes with our decor or liking.
For this project you will need
Thick decorative cloth
Matching thread
Sewing machine

I used a heavy weight fabric for this project. I didn't provide measurements for this project, instead I have shared an image below. The measurements on the rectangle piece of the cloth you use will depend on the size of the cushion or pillow.
Once you make a cushion or pillow it will get easier to stitch up lots in many creative ways such as joining different pieces of fabric.

  1. These are so cute!
    Happy new year!

  2. I like the look of these pillows. Though I'm not very crafty it doesn't sound that hard - since I'm stuck in with the storm and I have some fabric I might give this a try! Thanks!

  3. I will have to give this a try! I am not very useful when it comes to sewing, I can sew buttons and the occasional ripped seam so I might be able to do this! My mom has a sewing machine that has been sitting there for years now, I should dust it off!

  4. great tutorial, makes crafting less intimidating

  5. I love the new fabric. I have a dog pillow that I've been wanting to cover with an envelope type cover. This makes it look a lot easier than what I had imagined!

  6. This is an interesting DIY project! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Oh I like! What a great idea to change up throw pillows to match different decor!

  8. That's fantastic. I'm always impressed by people who have the skill for these home crafts

  9. Your pillows look store-bought! I love this idea!

  10. Oh wow! These are very cute :) Very handy as I was actually thinking I would love to recover some throw pillows I have!

  11. This is a great project for myself. I am not creative or talented
