Kraft Monster : Envelope Pillow

Envelope Pillow



  • Favorite fabric(probably cotton)
  • Stuff pillow 
  • Scissors 
  • Matching thread 
  • Iron 
  • Sewing machine


  1. For a 13 inch by 13 inch pillow you will need 15 by 15 inch piece of cloth
  2. Cut the fabric into 3 pieces all equal height but different length, one bigger square and the two small rectangles of the size of the square combined
  3. Lay down the large pieces on the bottom and then layer the two other pieces on top. This is just to get a sense of what it will look like. 
  4. Trim any edges so that the four sides of the square are pretty matched up. 
  5. On each of the smaller envelope pieces you'll create a nice finished seam on one of the longer sides. 
  6. Iron down about 1/2 an inch and pin. Remember you're only creating a finished seam on ONE long side for each piece. Sew along that seam.
  7. After the finished seam are done you'll lay down the larger piece, right side facing up. 
  8. Then place one of the smaller pieces on top, right side down. 
  9. Place the last small piece on top of that right side down. Now you'll pin along all four sides. 
  10. The middle flaps are left open to get the pillow insert in and out. Sew 5/8ths of an inch around the perimeter where you've pinned. 
  11. Turn it right side out and your envelope is ready to cover your fluffy cushion!
