How do you measure fabric for a pillow?
Measure the width of a pillow cover as from side seam to side seam, and the length as from the top seam to the bottom seam.
Typically the bottom seam houses the zipper or hook-and-loop closure.
Add seam allowances and cut the pillow fabric to the new measurements..

Where do you put Euro pillows?
Place your king pillows against the headboard and arrange your three euro pillows in front of them. Your accent pillows go at the very front of your arrangement and can be centered and staggered, or you can place one in front of the other two in a triangular formation.
Do shams go behind pillows?
Prop three European shams along the back of the bed. Instead of king size pillows, use three queen or standard size pillows with shams for the second layer, then center two boudoir pillows on the gaps. (Note that European squares often coordinate with the duvet in terms of color and pattern.)
How do you make a Euro sham look good?
I prefer a down or feather insert in my shams over a poly or cotton fiber fill. The down/feather pillows aren’t as stiff, which allows you to “karate chop” the top of them if you like. You can also fluff the pillows more easily and move the fill around so that it reaches the edges and fills out the sham.

Each pair of pillow shams uses 2 ~ 30 x 30 inch pieces of fabric and 4 ~ 17 x 30 inch pieces of fabric. You will need to buy more fabric than that because you will want the pattern of your fabric to be centered on your sham and you will want them to match.

What size pillow goes in 18×18 cover?
20x20We generally recommend using inserts that are 2″ larger all around than your finished pillow size. For example if you have an 18×18 pillow cover, you’ll want to use a 20×20 insert. This will ensure that your pillow looks plump and luxurious. If the insert is too small, the pillow cover will look saggy.
