This is fantastic! I've been wanting to tackle pillowcases. I'm a visual learner so I love the pictures.

Thanks again!

Nana, that's exactly what I did this time.  Won't lose it again, might forgot where I saved it though.  LOL

Well, I found your directions confusing... and I have made this pillowcase before!  Just couldn't find my previous instructions.  You don't say if the cuff fabric needs to be face up or down in Step One.  By the photo, it looks face down.  Also, I was using a fabric with a running pattern and it needed to be upside down so it would come out correct when finished.  Otherwise, thank you!

Here is a video using the same technique that Marge's tutorial walks us through.  I use a smaller accent strip than she recommends in the video.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

This is what I have saved on Word for myself.  Another quilter sent this to me.

I see that this is posting something about explorer, how odd. It does not show up on my posting end so I can't remove it. Sorry

Pillow case


The only one that is folded is the small contrast piece, and it is folded with WRONG sides together... I usually have a lot of these contrast strips made up and ready to go... I use left over scraps and just save them until I make pillowcases..



Width of Fabric CUT 27 INCHS LENGTH






1.Take cuff and lay down RIGHT side up.

2.Then take the accent piece (already pressed WRONG side together) and

lay at top of cuff.

3.Take body of pillowcase, open it up and lay it RIGHT SIDE DOWN. ( not folded)

4. PIN together the cuff, accent and body of pillow.

5.Take body of pillowcase and fold up and roll until you see the cuff.

6.Roll the cuff over the body of the case

(be careful not to catch any of the body in the stitching)

Stitch all the way across. Pull out fabric, turn inside out, cuff will be finished

and accent in the right place.


Be careful and match up the hem..and contrast pieces on the side

To have hidden seams, put the WRONG sides together, it will seem odd but you will have the print side up, facing out. Sew around, then turn inside out, now stitch around so that your seams get hidden.
