Euro shams are generally large square pillows, usually 26 x 26 or 28 x 28. They are really simple to make, and if you’re a beginner you can totally do this. I know that because I’m a beginner…I’ve been sewing for years but can only sew things that are squares, like pillows and curtains.
The first step is, of course, picking your fabric. I prefer home decor fabric for stuff like this because it’s thicker, but anything will work. The amount you will need to buy varies depending on how wide the fabric is that you choose.
Once you have your fabric, lay it out and cut your pieces. I like to make my pillows with envelope closures (rather than zippers) because it is simple and requires less time and materials. To do this, you will need one 29 x 29-inch square and two 29 X 24-inch rectangles
