Rough-stitched Ripped Linen Pillow Covers

Just as we were wrapping our head around learning to use our new sewing machine, we noticed these big pillow covers on IKEA’S blog Livet Hemma

…which sent us hunting around Ikea USA to discover that it is selling 100% linen by the yard for 7.99 a 59″ yard in white and gray.

We’ve long been fans of washed, shrunk, ripped linen and these couldn’t be easier: straight-stitch by hand in a contrasting thread (or stitch on a machine and add the big stitches for decoration).
