Reversible Pillows

Source: Martha Stewart Living, May 2010


Springtime calls for a playful approach to decorating. So mix -- don't match -- fabrics to create reversible pillows that you won't find on anyone else's sofa. A quick flip is all it takes to change your look, and you can do it as often as you change your mind. Just a yard each of three fabrics can make three 16-inch and three 18-inch pillows. Use fabrics in similar weights; pair them in different combinations. 


  1. For each pillow, cut 2 same-size pieces of fabric 1 inch longer and wider than you want the finished pillow to be.

  2. With right sides facing, stitch edges with a 1/2-inch seam allowance, leaving an opening to insert pillow.

  3. Turn right side out, insert pillow, and stitch shut by hand.
