Super Easy Zipper Pillows

My couch pillows were in desperate need of replacement.  I knew I wanted to make some myself this time with fabric I had on hand.  So I headed to the store to get some pillow forms so that I knew what size to make my pillow cases.  I had never really purchased pillow forms before, so when I saw they were just white zipper pillows (the same zipper pillows I was planning on making) filled with stuffing I decided to skip it and just stuff the pillow case itself.  So I have to pull out a mound of stuffing when I want to wash the cases, it saved me some major cash so I'm fine with it! Plus now I can make them any shape or size I please!


Of course I have to share how you can make super easy hidden zipper pillows (do not be afraid of the zipper part, this tutorial makes it all SUPER easy!).  But the tutorial wasn't mine, I learned this awesome method from Prudent Baby.

Check out this hidden zipper! It's in there!

  1. most batting is washable! just in case you get lazy and don't feel like un-stuffing the pillows.

  4. why not make a white case and stuff it with batting and sew it closed so you can have your own pillow form instead of removing loose batting?

  6. Sarah, Your absolutely right, I could do that. But in this case I decided I didn't want to have to worry about measuring and making sure everything fits. Plus if I sew it shut I can't add new batting as the old gets flat. I like to keep them nice and full.

  7. I did what post #4 Sarah said and it works great. Just use muslin or cut up an old white pillow case
    or sheet for fabric.
    Oops! I am dating myself because I bet you've never owned pillowcases and sheets in white!
