Recycled Vintage Table Cloth Pillow Form Cover

Recycled Vintage Table Cloth Pillow Form Cover

This project shows you how to make a vintage upcycled table cloth into a pillow form cover.

What you need

1 rectangle vintage table cloth
Downlite pillow form
Sewing machine


Step 1: Measure the panels on the sides and top of your pouffe. Ours was 14″ or  36 cm square.


Step 2: Place the 4 side panels together and sew into place. Wrap it around your pouffe inside out and add the top piece, secure to the side panels with pins, remove and sew.

Step 3: Add the bottom piece as a flap by only sewing to one side, this allows you to open and close the bottom.

Step 4 (Optional): Because our pouffe is so large we added a large opening at the bottom so it could be easily removed for cleaning. You can add a zip or as we did used Velcro pieces to secure the flaps closed when in use (see denim example below). If you do not want to remove the cover you could simply hand sew the bottom closed.

If you have access to a eyelet punch you can use this on (3) sides and machine sew the last side of your work.
