Step One

Gather your supplies. I love using Gold Oly-Fun for this project because it’s so easy to work with. The nice metallic sheen looks great with the softness of the Cuddle Suede from Shannon Fabrics!

  • St-Patricks-Day-Lucky-Pillow-2

Step Two

Cut two rectangles from the Cuddle Suede material measuring 13″ x 17″ and 13″ x 22.” Fold the longer piece in half and cut through the middle.

Step Three

Use the free “Lucky” template to cut the word out of Oly-Fun with either a cutting machine or a sharp pair of scissors.

  • St-Patricks-Day-Lucky-Pillow-4

Step Four

Secure Oly-Fun to the front of your largest panel with pins and begin to sew around the edges. Depending on your skill level, this might take some patience!

  • St-Patricks-Day-Lucky-Pillow-5

Step Five

Continue sewing around the “Lucky” edges until entire word is securely sewed to front panel. Hem the ends of the smaller panels by turning 1/4″ under twice and sewing along the edge.

  • St-Patricks-Day-Lucky-Pillow-6

Step Six

Place the two smaller flaps overlapping on the largest panel (right sides facing). Pin around the edge and sew 1/2″ seam around entire pillow cover. Trim the corners and turn right side out.

Place pillow into cover, position on a couch or chair, and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!
