Step 1: Materials

  • 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

Create a seam around the fabric by folding the edges of the rectangle inwards and stitching them.

Step 4: Get Sewing

Fold the rectangle in half so that the inside of the fabric is facing outwards. Sew the bottom and side edges of the fabric together, leaving an opening at the top.

Step 5: You're Done!

Turn the pillowcase inside out and you're done!
