Patio Pillows

 Make these outdoor patio pillows out of old pillows and a used or new vinyl tablecloth. Great re-purpose for those ratty pillows you might otherwise throw out!

                            All you need is old pillows.......

                          .......and a used or new vinyl tablecloth

 If square, measure straight across middle of pillow. Whatever measure is add 1 inch extra when cutting. (For a rectangle, measure across and lengthwise)

    My pillow measured 15 inches across, so I cut 2-16 inch squares.

Place squares right sides together, and pin 3 sides, 
leaving one end open.

             Sew a 1/2 inch seam all the way around the 3 sides.

Clip off corners, and turn right sides out. Don't forget to pop out those points!

                                     Slide that old pillow into it's new home!

                               Fold in ends and pin together.

                       Hand stitch opening closed. That's all there is to it!

Fast! Easy! Perfect for outside!
