step 3 / Position your patch piece onto the center of your main front piece, and pin it into place. Topstitch 1/8″ from the outer edge of your patch to secure it to your pillow front, as shown.
step 4 / Fold one of the long edges of your rectangular pieces down 1/4″; press. Fold under another 1/4″, and press again. Stitch to secure this hemmed edge. Repeat with your other rectangle piece. With your completed pillow front face up on your work surface, lay one of your rectangle pieces on top, right sides facing, so that the corners and edges are all aligned and the hem you just sewed runs through the center of your front piece. Pin. Now, position your other rectangle piece one the bottom portion of your pillow front piece in a similar manner. Pin. Note: The hemmed edges of your rectangle will overlap by a few inches at the center of your pillow. Using a 1/4″ seam, stitch all the way around the outer perimeter of your pinned pieces. Clip your corners and turn your pillow cover right-side out.
