PSQG Pillowcase Instructions
Start with 2 pieces of fabric – Pillowcase Band 9” x WOF and Pillowcase Body 27” x WOF.
Note: If your pieces are not quite this size you can make one smaller by enlarging the other.
❏ Trim off selvedges and fold the Band in half lengthwise and press.
❏ Unfold the Pillowcase Band and lay with the right side facing up.
❏ Lay the Pillowcase Body wrong side up so that the Pillowcase Band and Pillowcase Body are right sides together. Pin or Clip the raw edges together.
❏ Roll up the Pillowcase body so it’s narrower than the creased midline in the Pillowcase Band.
❏ Pull the bottom of the Pillowcase Band up to meet the top of the Pillowcase Band.
❏ Your Pillowcase Body will be inside the Pillowcase Band. Pin or Clip the raw edges together.
❏ Sew along the edge of the Pillowcase Band with a 3/8” seam allowance.
❏ This is the MAGIC ! Reach inside the tube and begin pulling out the Pillowcase Body. You’ll need to wiggle it through a bit. Keep wiggling until it’s all out! The Pillowcase Body will pull the Pillowcase Band inside out exposing all the goodies!
❏ Lightly press so it all lays flat. Put the wrong sides together. Carefully match up your corners and seams. Pin or Clip the raw edges.
❏ Sew the wrong side together using a 1/4” Seam allowance down the long end and the bottom short edge.
❏ Turn the pillowcase wrong side out with the right side together. Press along edge and secure with pins or clips.
❏ Sew right side together using a 3/8” Seam allowance down the long end and the bottom short edge.
❏ Turn Pillowcase right side out. Your Pillowcase is complete!
