- If you have pillow inserts in 20 x 20 inch, so you have to measure and cut out similar size. Furthermore, measure and cut out two pieces in the size 15 x 20 inch after ironing your fabric. Both are used to create an envelope style pillow cover.
- Take your fabric with the 15 x 20 inch pieces, then fold back for about 1 inch on one of your 20 inch fabric sides of each piece. Iron them down. Continue applying the Unique Stitch under the fold and glue it down. The reason why choose this type of glue is due to its strength in holding any fabric. Though you do no sew project, they hold so well.

Glue another (15×20 inch piece) with the bottom of your 20×20 inch piece. Make sure that the folded edges of your 15×20 inch pieces are overlapped. Let them sit and dry about a couple of hours.
