Master Bedroom Redo: Standard Pillow Cases

Step 1 in making over the master was replacing the cases for our regular pillows. I found a blue and white twin sheet in Logan’s mom’s stash. Perfect to keep the projects under budget.

I used fabric 1 for these.

What you’ll need:
* fabric
*coordinating thread
*pillow form

1.  Fold your fabric in half right sides together. Put your pillow on the fold.

2.  Cut the fabric to 1″ wider than the pillow and 8″ longer.

3.  Sew 1/2″ seam along the bottom and long side of the fabric.

4. Press 1/2″ along the top. Then fold down another 3 1/2″ and press.

5.  Sew along the pressed edge.

Note:  to do this with a twin sheet, cut the sheet in half lengthwise. Then cut the length 4″ longer than the pillow. Use the top edge of the sheet to skip steps 3 and 4.

Super easy for a quick change!
