KILIM THROW PIL­LOW­CASE

What you’ll need:

Kilim rug Mea­sur­ing tape Throw pil­low Snaps or Vel­cro fas­ten­ers Thread Nee­dle Scis­sors Pins

Di­rec­tions:

1. Get the length and width of the throw pil­low and use those mea­sure­ments to cut the rug into two pieces. Make sure to add 1 inch to each side to make for ex­tra space be­fore cut­ting. 2. Lay the two pieces of the cut rug side by side with the front of the fab­ric fac­ing down. Fold the side in­ward over 1/4 of an inch and sew it straight to close the fold. This cre­ates a clean edge from the out­side. Do this on all sides of both pieces. 3. Pin to­gether the two rugs with the front of the fab­ric fac­ing each other in­side. Leav­ing a 1/4-inch seam al­lowance, stitch along the sides, sewing them to­gether. Leave one side open. 4. On the open side, sew the snaps or Vel­cro fas­ten­ers. Turn the right side of the fab­ric out. 5. Place the throw pil­low in­side and close the pil­low­case with the snaps or the Vel­cro fas­ten­ers.
