There are so many great quilting fabrics available at the fabric store with nice patterns and colours. It’s a great way to add some detail to a simple bedsheet set without spending much.
Over the years, we’ve found that a smaller pillow was much more comfortable to sleep on. You can wrap your arm comfortably around the pillow if you tend to sleep on your side. Also a smaller sized pillow is good for children. I resized our (deflated) feather pillows to 11×15 by sewing a smaller case and stuffing the pillow in it.
Here’s some instructions for a simple pillowcase.
1. Cut the pieces Cut length of pillow twice the length + 6 inches
2. Fold & sew Finish the short fabric edges by folding over the seams. With good fabric sides together, fold the width of the pillow and then fold the 6 inch flap over layers. Sew together and serge the seams.
