Picture of Pillowcase

This tutorial is based on my former sewing tip Sew It Yourself - Pillowcase.
I've been asked to do a new tutorial for more thick and cubical pillows and here it is!

Have fun and feel free to ask me if there is anything troubling you :)

Step 1: Preparing

You need:
- some fabric - new or big enough leftover
- your sewing machine +thread
- zippe
- velcro


Picture 1 shows the original pillow. And because of it what it looks like it is asking for a new case :D
I meassured width, hight and length and added some seam allowance for sewing and zipper: (1+20+2,5+40+2,5+20+1) x (1+55+1) --> 87x57 cm ; 20x4xcm
*be sure to have the dimension of the velcon ribbon,too.

By creating a paper pattern first I could easily transfer the numbers onto the fabic. Cutting 1 big piece and 2 small pieces to cover the sides equals 1 pillowcase. (pic 3)


Nice job! Love that fabric, looks very soft :D
