  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Thread and Needle*
  • old pillowcase

*note: for a no-sew version of this pillow case, you can use fabric glue instead of stitching - however your pillow case will not last as long.

Step 2: Make Pattern

Using an old pillowcase as a guide, measure out the amount of fabric that you'll need, making sure to leave an extra 1 inch around the edges for the seams. Measure and cut out fabric.

Step 3: Stitch Seams
