    Love the blue one.
    Thank you, it's Dalmations and Firetrucks. I was thinking about you tonight. LOL. I was posting a teaching on a Christian women's forum and I used "KWIM?" and my mind went right to you.

    It's this simple... 2 1/5 yards of 60 inch fabric, and four standard pillows. I used Jersey Knit, fold your selvages under and sew them down.



    Lay down inside out, folded over as a pillow sham is folded. But, just so a standard pillow will lay end to end across the folded fabric. Sew the ends closed.


    Turn the long giant sham right side out. Lay out flat and nice, mark across at 21 inch intervals down to make your pillow cases for each one. It's 3 seams for four pillows. Sew on these marks across the right side of the fabric.


    That's it! Slip your Standard pillows in and it's done.


    They fold easy and can be tied with a ribbon to store or gift.

    GREAT idea! .....but, DUH!, I'm confused (doesn't take much!) Saw how you did the envelope type back but when they are folded up I'm not seeing any pillows peeking out. What part did I miss (???????) before I start one and then find out I screwed up!

    Wonnie, the pic where you see the pillow, that gap closes right up and when you accordian fold them, it's inside. I had pulled that gap open so you could see the pillow before I closed it. HTH.

    That is a wonderful idea. I will show my Daughter, she may want to make some for their camper.

    My 20 year old came in this afternoon, and saw these. He ask for one for Christmas. That would take 5 pillows. LOL.

    Thank you! Knew it had to be something simple that I was missing!
