VARIATION: Velcro-Closure Pillow Cover
If your pillow is a very fat pillow, the simple envelope-style pillow cover described before may not work so well (your pillow innards will constantly be threatening to bust out). The easiest way to secure the cover shut is using velcro. In addition to the materials listed for the basic pillow cover, you'll need a strip of velcro (both loop-side and fuzzy side, of course) that's approximately (w"-4") in length.

1 Follow steps 1-4 for the simple pillow cover.
2 Place the fabric with the inside of the fabric facing up. Approximately 3/4" from the top of the fabric, lay down one of the velcro strips and sew the strip securely into place. Fold the fabric as pictured below:

3 Mark the placement for the second velcro strip using a colored pencil. Sew the strip securely into place, using a straight stitch to go around the edges:

4 Fasten the velcro strips together, then flip the fabric inside-out. Proceed to sew the edges, as instructed in steps 6-8 of the basic pillow cover instructions.

so you want to get a bit fancier, eh?
