Fabric & Trim Yardage Chart for Pillows

Use the Estimates Chart below to calculate how much fabric & trim you'll need to make decorative pillows. These estimates are based on a standard upholstery fabric width of 45"-54" . Extra yardage may be required to match patterns. If the pillow form that you are using is very firm, then it may be necessary to add an extra inch to both the length and the width.
