Ritajoy from Harbour Breeze made her own pillow covers with a faux button closure to update an old sofa. She simply sewed a “pocket” to slide the pillow into, hand sewed the center of the top flap to close it up, and then added the button detail. She tied a piece of jute around the button to give the appearance of being tied closed. I recommend reading the story behind those gorgeous vintage buttons, as it brings some sentimental meaning to the pillows.
Ritajoy was inspired by the Textured Linen Pillow Covers from Pottery Barn.
