Ten minutes and a beautiful piece of fabric is all you need to make this cute pillow cover. Use a ready-made pillow form or make one from the included directions.

A little 'pinch' at the waist creates dramatic and elegant styling. Perfect for gifts, decorating and embellishing.

The 'In A Pinch' pillow is my go-to quick gift. It's great for anyone and anywhere, to give a little comfort in a pinch. Great for the car, couch, plane, chair or bed.

Great beginner project and to sew with kids.

Make a pillow form or buy a ready made one. See Materials list for product recommendations for both options.

Ready made pillow forms are usually a little overstuffed for this project. Directions included to de-poof and take a little stuffing out. Save that extra stuffing for your next pillow!

Size 12" x 16"
