Theme Fabric Pillowcase
with contrasting trim and cuff
For EACH pillowcase:
3/4 yard (27" x 42") THEME Fabric (1 1/2 yards for a pair)
11" x width of fabric (WOF) for CUFF edge (2/3 yard for
2" x WOF for TRIM (4" for pair)
Place Cuff right side UP with raw edges at top and bottom and
selvages at sides
Fold and press Trim in half (wrong sides tog) to form strip 1" x
Place raw edges of Trim along the top edge of the Cuff.
Place Theme right side DOWN against the Cuff & Trim, lining up all
the raw edges at top edge. The selvages should all be at the side
edges of all pieces. Temporarily pin together to hold in place. You
can trim the selvage edges if the fabrics are not all the same WOF
Roll up the Theme piece toward the pins until you can grab the
bottom edge of the Cuff. Pick up the bottom edge of the Cuff and
bring it up to the raw edges that are pinned together. Undo the
pins and re-pin connecting everything together - forming a tube.
The pins should be holding together the Top of Cuff, both edges
of Trim, Top of Theme and Bottom of Cuff with the Theme fabric
rolled up inside the tube.
Sew along the pinned edge. Reach into tube and turn right sides
out. If you have a hemostat it works quicker.
Press flat. Fold right sides together so you can serge (or sew) the
bottom edge and side edge, completing the pillowcase.
