Fringed Pillow Cover
- To make the fringed pillow cover shown here, wrap a fringed hand towel around a small pillow form, overlapping the ends so the fringe shows on top.
- Pin the open edges together but leave the overlapping edges of the towel open.
- Remove pillow form and stitch edges together using needle and thread or sewing machine.
- Slip pillow form back into the pillow cover via the open flap.
