Project Description

Together we'll knit a simple pillow cover and embellish it with a modern embroidered motif.

This is one of those DIYs that looks impressive, but it actually quite simple to do. You'll turn stockinette stitch fabric into a pillow cover and embroider it using a duplicate stitch technique.

Be sure to check out the attached written tutorial before you begin (especially if you’re planning to use a different sized pillow or yarn!). There you'll find more information about selecting materials and a helpful photo guide for the embroidery.

Have a question? Stuck on one section? Leave a comment and we'll get through it, promise! 

Can't wait to see your progress and finished pillows shared below!
