pillow case

I’ve made pillowcases before, but this was the easiest set of all.

While I was sorting through a small room in the basement where a lot of extra stuff gets stored and often forgotten, I found a box of old sheets. They were for a twin-size bed which we do not have, and most of them went into the donation pile. I saved a couple because I liked the print on them and thought I could use them for something.

It turns out this size sheet is the perfect width across for 2 pillow cases. The top hem is already in place as part of it, so once the length is cut, the seams just need to be sewn up. You end up with a pair of cases with the top opening already neatly done for you.  You don’t even need a pattern for this, just lay an existing pillowcase on top of the fabric to cut the correct length.
