I then made a pleat in the center tucking up all the extra fabric..
Added a safety pin...
Folded the "top" down and made corners like I was wrapping a present and pinned..
Folded the bottom up and pinned. (at this point you could tack on some large buttons if you want it more finished than safety pins)
And there you go! These would also look great finished off with some jute twine wrapped around it like you do with ribbon on a gift!( Also, If you wanted a crisper look, I would iron and starch the fabric before wrapping the pillow)
You could also do this with any fabric remnant that is big enough..if farmhouse isn't your thing, imagine the trendy french grain sack, floral, a yummy vintage scarf or even muslin or linen layered with vintage lace or doilies..add ribbon or lace and tack with a rhinestone brooch!
