Pillow Cases (tutorial)

Are you tired of your pillow cases? Or even more, do you need new ones because yours are tired and worn? Well here's a simple idea. Find a great fun cotton or cotton blend fabric.
Use your old pillow cases for a pattern. Be sure to add 5/8" seam allowances and 4" at the top for the hem. Sew side seams. Serge or zigzag. Fold under 1/2"at the top. Press. Next fold again and press 3 1/2" under for the finished hem. Stitch.
There you have it! A new fun pillow case!
I made these for a gift for a sweet niece for her bridal shower.
Congratulations "A" on your upcoming wedding!
