Camp S’more Series: Pillow-Palooza!

Welcome back to my Camp S’more Series. It’s pillow day!! Thanks to the kind folks at Ink and Arrow Fabrics my Sew Junie camper is getting a mini-makeover. This cute fabric is just perfect for my 1971 Shasta Camper that I took from 70’s to farmhouse cozy 2 years ago.


When I started my pillow-palooza, I really wanted to mix it up. I wanted this set of pillow covers to be fun and exciting, with a lot of patchwork and pattern play. Most importantly, I needed to get them done quickly. What I didn’t want was to go to the fabric store. I had my stack of Camp S’mores fabric from Ink and Arrow, a mountain of pillow forms, and my handy stash of trims. What I was short of were invisible zippers.


Originally, I had intended to use my basic invisible zip pillow cover pattern from At Home with Modern June. Past the basic construction, I meant to mix up the pillow fronts with a combination of looks, but I only had a few zips on hand. I knew that I’d need to make some envelope pillow covers so, I headed off to my favorite sewing sites and got inspired.


Check out all the free pillow tutorials that I pinned this week on my DIY Sewing & Craft board!



I think my favorite pillow has to be the Hourglass Pillow tutorial that I found on I love, love, love the button detail. We love tufting, right?


Maybe the Easy Strips Pillow my favorite, this one was very quick and easy to make. Man, it’s just too hard to choose a favorite. APQ has over 45 free pillow patterns and so much more!


If you are looking for a great envelope style, pillow cover tutorial with multiple options of trim the Grandma Anna’s Pretty Little Pillows via sew4home is a winner. It inspired me to get creative on the backside of my pillows.


Here is a peek at my pillow cover pattern in At Home with Modern June!


Please head over to the first post in this series to enter to win a lovely bundle of fabric. It’s enough material to make the small quilt that I used as a tablecloth and as a picnic quilt. I’ll be picking a winner on Monday!


Come back on Monday to see the entire camper makeover and to see if you are the lucky winner!
