Project Type: Make a Project

Time to complete: Under an hour

Sewn by: Both Hand and Machine


Materials List
  • 20" round pillow form
  • 1.25 yds fabric
  • 4 yds 7/8 grosgrain ribbon
  • 2 yds. 3/8 grosgrain ribbon
  • Straight pins
  • 3 or more safety pins
  • Handmade or bought crochet rounds
  • Sewing machine
  • Serger (optional)
  • Scissors
  1. Print/cut/tape your quarter circle template and fold your fabric twice so that the template fits right on it. Align the templates straight edges with the fabric folds. Pin in place and cut around it.
  2. This is your round pillow case piece.
  3. Either serge around the perimeter of the fabric or zigzag stitch the edge.
  4. Fold down one side of the 7/8" wide ribbon 1/4" and start pinning it right above the stitches. Once you reach the beginning, be sure to overlap slightly then cut off the ribbon and fold down 1/4?. Sew ribbon on along both sides going all around the circle. This will form a casing for the ribbon ties.
  5. Secure a safety pin to one end of your 3/8" wide ribbon and feed it into the casing until it comes out the other end. Your pillowcase will bunch up quite a bit. Be sure not to pull the end of the ribbon in.
  6. Take your round pillow form.
  7. and insert it into the case.
  8. Get your 3 safety pins ready.
  9. Pull the ribbon ties so that the opening is scrunched up with no room left.
  10. Place your 3 crochet accents over the opening and arrange them so that the opening wont show. Then pin only the doilies together. Hand stitch or machine stitch those together where they are overlapping.
  11. Secure your 3 safety pins between the doilies and the scrunched opening. Of course you can use more safety pins if you need!

This gathered blossom pillow cover is lovely even without the added crocheted center circles. Perhaps some fabric coordinated yo-yos would take the place of the crocheted circles. The sewing pattern template that can be downloaded and printed (eleven pages) is somewhat confusing however this project seems easy enough to do.
