I get bored easily and unfortunately... The Boy and I are not rich. This means I have to get creative when I get the I want to redecorate blues. Have y'all noticed how expensive bedding is?! All for a little bit of cotton and some thread. Its ridiculous! Today we're going to learn how to make our own pillowcases. We'll get into the rest of the bedding week by week.
We're going to cheat. You could either do a lot of cutting and pressing or you can do it my way. But since you're still reading, I'm assuming my way is your chosen path. Excellent!
Fold your fabric in half lengthwise, right sides facing.
Make sure your fabric measures 35"x17". You may have to trim some fabric from the width to make it 17".
Sew the bottom and the opened side closed. Turn the pillow case right side out.
The opened end will still be rough, don't worry we're about to fix that.
Iron the edge where my fingertips are.
Please note that my pins are at the 5 inch mark, this is where you will top stitch. Be sure to hold the fabric so that you don't sew the pillowcase shut. ;)
