Recently I wanted to make a fun pillowcase for my therapists little daughter. I searched online and even printed a pillowcase pattern. But I remembered my sister-in-love made pillowcases she said were very easy. So yesterday I was reunited with my sewing machine after a 10 week separation.
And as it turned out, this pillowcase pattern was SO quick and easy to put together.
Materials needed for a standard size pillowcase:
2 1/2" strip for accent piece
3/4 yard for main body of pillowcase
Begin with 1/4 yard piece (cuff) with right side of fabric facing up.
Press the 2 1/2" accent piece lengthwise with WRONG sides together.
Press the 3/4 yard fabric and place on top of other pieces with WRONG side facing up. Pin the three layers of fabric in place, making sure raw edges are lined up on the top.
Fold pillowcase in half (WRONG sides together) with the pillowcase cuff edges together, lined up at the seam. Stitch side and bottom using 1/4" seam allowance.
And here are the pillowcases I worked on.
UPDATE: I am adding a youtube by Missouri Quilt Company. Please note that my pillowcase has the french seam finish.
