Buttonholes: I made 3 evenly spaced one row buttonholes. For instructions on how to make a one row buttonhole see the video at the end of this post. You can use as many or as few buttons as you like. Continue in stockinette for another 1.5 inches

Bind off on RS row.

With wrong sides facing seam the back and front together on the 2 sides and bottom leaving the top open to slip pillow in. Seam the cast on edge of the flap piece to the bind off edge of front piece.
I chose to put the pillow in first before I marked where my buttons were going to go so I could ensure they wouldn’t pull too much when buttoned.
