DIY Summer Pillow Sleeve

Today I’m over at Tatertots & Jello sharing a tutorial for this fun DIY Summer Pillow Sleeve!   I love the idea of simple projects that you can use to easily change up the decor in your home for the seasons.  This pillow sleeve is sooo easy to stitch up, it only has TWO seams!

Make one now for summer then make another one in the Fall!  I can see in my head Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas pillow sleeves too! The sleeve is made by freezer paper stenciling on burlap- I’ve included a file that you can upload into your favorite electronic cutting software. To download it visit the templates page.

Even though this pillow’s not weather proof I love how it looks outside on my deck. I might just have to make one next out of outdoor fabric!

Hop on over to Tatertots & Jello today to get the full tutorial!!
