We all can use an extra pillowcase or two. That’s why I decided to dedicate my Sunday afternoon to this sewing project.
I had this fitted sheet, that I took the elastic out of. Part of the elastic went towards fixing a thrifted skirt, another part is waiting for it’s hour. My original intention was to throw the fabric away, but I am not as wasteful as you think, hence the pillowcases!
You are going to want to cut out two rectangles – 43″ by 32″ (assuming you are making 2 pillowcases )
Fold them in half:
Then I took one of the pillowcases that I had and outlined it using a pencil:
Next all you need to do is sew along the side and the bottom, leaving one of the shorter sides open:
And finally fold about 1/2″ of the opening in, and in once again:
And here we have it – brand new pillowcases!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
