A simple sewing project how to update a plain IKEA pillowcase by adding applique patchwork hexagons. This is a lovely project that can be done by hand to create a unique pillow for your home. Using an oriental patterned fabric I created a gorgeous retro chinoiserie style pillow to match my decor. – Claire Armstrong of Pillar Box Blue
