Supplies Needed:

Medium-weight cotton fabric in a desired color and print- 2 yards ( you can make two pillowcases with this much fabric).

Sewing Notions.


Gather your supplies.


Cut your fabric 64.5” long and 20” wide. You have one long piece of fabric.


Fold one of the short edges by 1/2- inch twice and press. Let’s call it edge 1.


Fold the other short edge by 1/2- inch and press. Fold again by 1- inch and repeat pressing. Let’s call it edge 2.


Sew down the two folds.


Next, take the edge that is folded by 1/2-inch (edge 1) and with the wrong sides together, fold it again by 5.5- inches and press to form a crease.


Open the fold and bring the opposite edge (edge 2) to line up with the crease.


Fold edge- 1 back over edge-2, along the crease, and clip or pin the edges together, all around.


Sew around the edge, leaving a gap of about 4-inches to turn the right side out.


Bring the right side out through the opening.
