The first thing you want to do is start with your pillow form. I'm working with an 18 inch pillow form, so I've cut to 18 by 18 inch squares next you're going to mark a midway point along all four sides. You can either take your tape measure to measure the midway point or you can hold your fabric together, find your midpoint and mark it.
That way, once you have your midpoint marked you're, going to take your straight edge from corner to corner and you're, going to mark up half an inch from the edge along that diagonal line. Do that at all four corners then take your French curve to draw the line from that half inch mark up to the center mark of your pillow. This line is going to allow our corners to be a little softened around the edge of the pillow.
So you won't get those extra pointy corners, you're a, do that along all four sides, and then your markings will look like this next, I'm a take my scissors and cut along those angled lines. Do that around all four sides, so that your fabric will now have tapered edges like this you're, going to pin your fabric all the way around and sew it at half an inch leaving an opening to put in your pillow form.
So once I sew it all. The way around I'm stitching at both ends, I've left the opening, and it looks like this. I'm now going to clip my corners to reduce bulk clip all four corners once you've clipped all four corners, take your pillow form and flip it right side out, and you can use your point turner to do this to poke out the corners once it's turned. All the way out, you'll insert your pillow form and your pillow will look like this.
