This little project was inspired by those fleece no-sew blankets that everyone was making this year and Nester's ragamuffin idea. It's oh-so-simple, with a big TA-DA and no sewing machine. Those are some of my favorite things!
You take two pieces of fabric that are each about 6 inches (on all sides) bigger than the pillow you want to cover. So if your pillow is an 18" square, you want your fabric to be about 30" square. The excess fabric around the pillow is going to be your fringe, so if you want longer fringe, use a larger piece of fabric.
Lay the two pieces of fabric on top of each other. Then cut out the corners of your fabric. The size of the square you cut out of the corners should be the same length (on each side) as the length that your fringe will be. I'm not explaining this very well. Just look at that picture up there. It makes more sense than I do.
Keep the two pieces of fabric on top of each other and start tying each top strip to it's corresponding bottom strip on the other piece of fabric. Clearly, I should not be writing instruction manuals.
I couldn't decide if I liked the right or wrong side of this fabric better. I used the right side of the fabric for one side of the pillow and the wrong side of the fabric for the other side of the pillow. Is that enough sides for you?
