Introduction: Dish Towel Pillow Case

Picture of Dish Towel Pillow Case

Dish Towel Pillow:
I was able after Christmas last year to purchase lots of Christmas plaid  dish towels for cheap. These are directions for making a  small pillow case (for a travel size pillow)  but could easily be made as pillow sham for regular size pillows. ( Holiday Bed Spread out of these same towels   https://www.instructables.com/id/HOW-TO-MAKE-A-HOLIDAY-BEDSPREAD/  )

Supplies:
Dish Towels (2 per travel pillow - approximate 6 for a regular pillow)  amounts could vary depending on the size of the towels and pillows
Yarn to match or compliment towels
Yarn needles
Scissors

Step 1: Sewing Towels

I used a simple blanket stitch, (see several pictures) In one side out the other and over yarn to make a loop stitch.
