This is the best pillow case pattern ever. You can choose your fabric and then whip this baby together in a few minutes. You will notice there are no ragged edges on this pillow case.
Standard Pillow Case
For each pillow case you will need:
1/4 Yard Cuff Fabric
3/4 Yard Pillow Body Fabric
2” Strip (optional) Cut WOF. Iron the trim, lengthwise, wrong sides together. You should have a 1”X 42” strip.
Place the cuff fabric on a hard surface, right side up.
Place the trim on top of the cuff, matching raw edges at the top end of the cuff. Note, your salvage edges will be on each side of the cuff and the raw edges will be at the top and bottom.
Lay the pillow body fabric on top of the cuff and the trim, right side down, matching the raw edges. PIN, PIN, PIN.... be sure to pin the three sections together securely.
You now have a long roll that looks like this.
Fold your pillowcase in half, right sides together. Line your ruler up with the cuff of the pillowcase so your cut will be straight. Then, trim the salvage edges off of your pillowcase.
Pull the pillow body from the center of the roll.
Press your seams flat.
After your case is trimmed nice and straight, pin the raw edges and sew them together using a 1/4" seam.
Use something pointy to pull out corners and define seam edges.
Press the case and making the the edges crisp and straight.
