This is the best pillow case pattern ever. You can choose your fabric and then whip this baby together in a few minutes.
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.
Pull the pillow body from the center of the roll.
Press your seams flat.
Cut the bottom of the pillow case to square it up.
After your case is trimmed nice and straight, with fabric wrong sides together, pin the raw edges and sew them together using a 1/8" seam.
Trim the corners.
Turn the pillowcase inside out and pin the top and trim pieces in place. Sew a 1/4” seam on the inside of the pillowcase, along the seam edges. This seam will encase the raw edge on first seam.
Turn the pillowcase right side out and press the pillowcase one last time.
