First measure and cut the fabrics according to the pillow size you want, then lay them out to see how it will look (remember a seam allowance when measuring):
Then sew two of the sides onto the burlap piece:
Then sew the remaining two sides:
Then onto the back. To make an envelope opening, cut two pieces of fabric the same height as the front of the pillow, but about 4 inches longer in width:
Hem the two edges that overlap. Lay them on top of the pillow front, right sides together and lining up the edges. Pin in place:
Sew around all four sides. Turn right side out and it's ready for the pillow insert. Mine is 16x16 inch pillow.
Ta-da! Seriously this was a quick and fun project! I've got to make a couple for me now!
