I wanted to make throw pillows with a modern feel, so I created this design with a graphic sensibility. I love the dark-brown background fabric with vivid pink accent strips. The standard convention is to use a pillow form one inch larger than the pillowcase. I don't like an overstuffed pillow, however, so these instructions are written for pillow forms one inch smaller than their cases.
