Pillow Wraps are a great way to “；spruce up”； an old set of pillows on your sofa! You can keep the pillow then simply swap out the wraps for the various seasons.？ Today I’；m going to show you how to make a set of Burlap Pillow Wraps just for the Kentucky Derby! It’；s a quick and simple Kentucky Derby Craft Idea!
I have a set of pillows on my couch that I love to swap out each season. I’；ve got a set for Christmas， Halloween and the 4th of July. ？With Derby coming up I decided it was high time that I made a new set of pillows for the occasion. ？I’；ve used my Derby Style fabric for the pillow covers and dressed up the outside of the pillows with some？burlap ribbon pillow wraps.family pillow cover
The wraps are simply pinned onto the pillow (with safety pins of course) and can be taken off later (I think I’；ll move the pillows to my daughter’；s room after Derby). I ended up using a few different ribbons to make each？pillow wrap. Today I’；m going to show you how I made the wraps along with how I stitched the various ribbons together.
These pillows covers are just simple cases？with an invisible zipper closure. Here’；s a link to a tutorial to sew a pillow with an invisible zipper closure. Today we’；re just making the wraps.
The images for the front of the pillow wraps were cut out of flocked iron-on material with my Cricut. ？I’；m happy to share the .svg file with you for the “；My Old Kentucky Home”； &； Jockey pillow.. just hop on over to the templates page to download them.
If you do decide to make the pillows， just remember when you pull the “；Kentucky”； file into your Cricut Design Space you need to “；attach”； all of the layers together so that the letters cut out inside of the state shape. ？It will look all black on your screenpillow covers vintage， but when you click the “；go”； button you’；ll see the outline of the letters.
This method can be used to make pillow wraps for ANY occasion， it doesn’；t？have to be for the Derby. ？Last year I made a fun Summer Pillow wrap (click here for the tutorial)？using a similar method.
Okay， now onto the tutorial， to make these pillows you’；re going to need (contains affiliate links)：
Cut out your image with your Cricut and the iron on material. ？Make sure you reverse your image before you cut it.
Cut the burlap ribbon to 40″； long. TEST your ribbon with your iron BEFORE you iron it， you may need to use a pressing cloth (many ribbons will melt when ironed， check first). Iron the image onto the center of the 4″； wide burlap ribbon
Peel off the plastic backing. Make sure it’；s ironed on well.
Cut two pieces of ribbon each 40″； long.
Set your sewing machine to a zig zag stitch in the widest setting you have. Set your stitch length to 5.
Place the burlap ribbon and the other ribbon next to each other under the presser foot. Don’；t overlap the two pieces. Zigzag stitch over the ribbon edges to join. One motion of the zigzag stitch will hit one ribbon， the next move will hit the other ribbon. Make sure to lock your stitch at the beginning and end.
Repeat for the other side of the burlap.
Wrap the sewn pieces around the pillow， fold under the raw edges and safety pin in place (hide the safety pins).
You can easily make a bunch and swap them out as you like throughout the year!
Easy to sew and even cuter to wear, the Haute Top gives the everyday, basic top a chic twist. Make this project your own by choosing a bold print with a vintage feel or a basic go-to color that goes perfectly with your favorite statement necklace. Either way, the light knit fabric makes this top so versatile—wear it with a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt for a night out on the town.
