Got some tired-looking throw pillows and a shirt with a case of ring-around-the-collar? Dress up your bed.
What You Need
1. Place pillow form on an ironed, buttoned shirt. (If using batting, try a pizza pan to get a nice circle.) Trace the shape with a pen and cut the fabric 1/2 inch outside your line.
2. With the outer panels facing each other, stitch all the way around -- about 1/2 inch inside the fabric edge.
3. Turn right-side out and unbutton to insert your pillow form or stuff with batting, then button back up. Your new pillowcase can be machine washed using the gentle cycle.
