The first time I ever tried a tie-dye project was three years ago and I was immediately hooked. Now that I’m a tie-dye fan, this time of year with warmer weather means tie-dyeing to me. I’m always up for a new tie-dye project. My oldest “baby” wanted to decorate her college dorm room with tie-dye and so we made this tie-dye pillow together. It’s now one of her favorite dorm room décor items. Oh, and it’s easy to make, so you know I love it.

Pillow Form – We used a 20 x 20 inch pillow form.

Cut your tie-dyed fabric to the dimensions of your pillow form + 1/2 inch. So for a 20 x 20 inch pillow, you’d cut the fabric to 20 1/2 x 20 1/2 inches.

Sew three sides of the  fabric with a 1/4 inch seam. (If you plan ahead, you can cut your fabric so that the fold is one side and you only need to sew two sides.) Insert your pillow form and hand-stitch the opening shut.
