You can wash your pillow covers after using this glue on them, and it still holds strong. It takes a little longer to dry than some of the other fabric glues, but the end result is much better. You can find Unique Stitch at most craft stores or online.

So, here’s a quick pillow tutorial.

You need fabric. 1 yard of fabric – 2 pillows, so buy accordingly.
You also need scissors and of course, the fabric glue.
To make an envelope pillow
  • Cut 3 pieces of fabric.
    • One 20×20 inch piece
    • Two 20×15 inch pieces.
  • The two 20×15 inch panels combine to make the backside of the pillow, overlapping slightly in the center, with an opening in the center (where the green arrows are) that the pillow goes into.
Here’s a diagram to show you how it works.

To assemble your pillow

  • Place the two 20×15 panels on top of the 20×20, matching up the numbers in the diagram.
  • The black arrows show you where to glue the fabric to attach the panels to one another.
  • Run a strip of glue along the edge on the two 20×15 panels where the green arrows are and fold the fabric over so that they look finished and no raw edges.
  •  Assemble this pillow inside out, lay the fabric with the print facing inward.
When the pillow is assembled, the two 20×15 panels end up where the pillow opens in the back, slightly overlapping.  This is what the back of your pillow will look like.

(It functions just like a standard sham pillowcase, and you can remove it to wash it.)
Once you’ve glued your pillow cover together, allow it to dry overnight. Once it’s dry, you can turn your pillow cover right-side-out and stuff your pillow in the opening. I like to use down alternative pillow inserts because they fill the covers out really nicely.
