How to Make a Pillow Sham & Giveaway!

An easy quick tutorial for you this week- a pillow sham. You may have seen my regular pillowcase video tutorial HERE. Well, this one has an envelope closure on the back side and a 2″ frame around the entire pillow form that goes inside.

{floral fabric print I used for sham can be found HERE.}
This project whips up super quick and is a big time money saver! If you’ve ever tried to decorate your room with pretty bedding you know how much one of these shams can cost at a store. 
In this video tutorial I will teach you how to take measurements of the pillow you will be using so you can create a custom sham for it in any size. I use a standard sized pillow (20″ x 26″) but you can use the same method for smaller or larger pillows.

    I love flannel pillow cases! Michael Levine’s Flora – ML231628 – Ocean would fit the bill.

    Great tutorial. What exactly is the heat erasable pen you’re using? Friction pen? Frixion pen?
