Get Inked

Alright, Alright I didn't get a tattoo but I did a bit of inking on my pillow. This is a simple envelope pillow cover that only took minutes to make. What makes this pillow unique is that I wrote one of my favorite hymns on it. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I ended up really liking that way it turned out.

Materials used:
Fabric- one yard
Quote of song of your choice
Permanent marker
Sewing machine

Total project time:
30 minutes

Note: If you are new to sewing and would like to see videos about envelope pillow covers and how to make them is a great source.

Happy Crafting


  1. After you wrote everything-before you sewed it-did you wash it? I know it's permanent marker but I'm nervous it will bleed if I wash it...but I want to wash it to get my pencil marks off!

  2. I washed the pillow case first but have not washed it after using the marker on it! It is mostly for decoration so visitors are not cuddling up to it ha-ha.
