Patriotic Pillow- free patterm

This is by far the easiest pattern for this very special pillow cover.

Tip - Measure your pillow that you want to cover (I am recovering an existing pillow that is bigger than what is suggested) and adjust your pattern.

Note: This is not my pattern - Please follow the request of the designer.
