I had a few email requests for more information about how to make the pillowcases, my friend Jane in Florida is going to make a Toy Story 3 one for her granddaughter!
I take my fabric and leave it folded the way it comes off the bolt. I usually lightly iron it, giving myself an even fold.
Then I trim 2 inches off the selvage side of the fabric.
I like to make French Seams so I leave my fabric with the right side of the material 'out' and make a 2/8th's seam along one end and along the side of the fabric.
I then turn the fabric inside out, and iron done the seam. I then take a 3/8th's seam. This encloses the whole seam inside, and makes a total of a 5/8th's seam.
Here is what the seams look like finished.
You are now ready to make your fold at the opening of the pillowcase. This time I folded 2 inches over then folded it again about 6 to 8 inches. This is where you could trim several inches off before doing your seams, if you wish.
I used a decorate stitch to sew the seam at the opening of the pillowcase.
Here is the finished product on Kyle's bed. A darling, brand new pillowcase for about $4.00! He loves it!
