Finishing Pillow Cover
Block your edging lightly into nice points.
Fold 15″ of bottom portion up towards the decorative top edge leaving the last 5 1/2″of the gray pattern and decorative edging as a single layer.
With yarn needle and a long strand of Koala yarn, stitch along the side edges together on both sides forming the pillow pocket.
Turn the cover right side out.
Sew the decorative buttons in place similar to the picture.
Insert Pillow and fold the decorative top over.
Congratulations!!!! You now have a Victorian Pillow Cover!!
