I just put 60x40 pillow case in both EBay and Amazon and they had some. Amazon seem to market them as baby/toddler pillows.

Yeah I’ve got a cheap Vida machine for basics, what measurements would you say given it’s not flat ?

Brilliant.

Measure the cusions using a ‘soft’ tape measure (or try with a builders ‘solid’ one) from seam to seam.

Add 5 cms to both the length and width measurements to allow for seam allowances but you’ll also want extra for the turnover on the pillowcase (see link below).

Honestly it is VERY easy to make the covers yourself with a sewing machine. I’ll try and find a link so you have photos to follow.

Even if you can’t sew in a proper straight line it doesn’t matter as the cushion bulk will forgive that entirely.

Just do the flap so the cushion doesn’t fall out and you’re sorted.

Tip: if you have a spare sheet or duvet that’s marked etc, you can cut that up. Or buy a sheet in the right colour and cut it up for the cover. so many colour options that way.

Ah brilliant thanks for all the advice, I’ll buy patterned fabric of sorts I’ve only got the best fabric quality sheeting I’m not cutting that up as expensive, I actually bought the machine to make a fleece throws into a fitted sheets (still to do) for the comfort aspect and make curtain pelmets as I begrudge the price for ready to go or made to measure for decent quality stuff, this is my new money saving venture, sewing LOL who’d have thought!
