7 Now I needed to find another section of fabric that would be able to bridge the gap in the cover, plus allow at least 4" extra length for an overlap at the pillow cover opening (right). I took a third piece of green fabric, and lined it up with the open edge of the blue fabric, leaving the finished side of the green open. Again, I sewed the pieces together, front-sides facing one another, using a 3/8" seam.
8 At this point, I had a nice long green-blue-green piece of fabric. I placed the fabric front-side up on my work surface, and lined up my pillow edge with the seam I had just sewn. Starting with the finished edge first, I wrapped up the pillow.
10 All that was left to do now was to sew the open sides closed. With that done, I flipped the cover right-side-out, wriggled my pillow into place, and was done!
