There is just something I love about drop cloth fabric.
Maybe it’s the fact that you can get a 9×12 cloth for under $20.
Or maybe it’s the texture that feels so rustic and industrial.
Regardless of the reason, after the great feedback on the drop cloth curtains, I realized you love it too.
This DIY is just as easy as the curtains; it took me about 25 minutes to make the pillow case. It would’ve been a bit shorter too, except Moxie and Gunner decided they needed to play right where I was working. 🙂

Using leftover fabric from the curtains, I flattened out a small corner, set my pillow up to the edge and measured the width. Then I folded the fabric over the pillow and cut a small slit where top met up with the bottom.
Using a measuring tape, I pinned a cutting line from the bottom up to the slit, measuring 18 inches across.
Then I cut right along the line of pins (they work as a great guide and make it a little easier to cut straight) up to the top slit.
Grabbing the rest of the fabric, I cut 35 inches of the seam off, which will be the ties. I cut those into quarters, two for each side of the fabric.
Then I placed one strip four inches from each edge, secured the bottom with a pin and sewed it in place.
The last step was sewing the pillow together. To do this, I folded it in half, inside out, pinned the sides together and sewed right along the edge.
Flip the fabric right side out and you’re done!
All our best,
