Do you still need a quick easy gift for someone on your holiday giving list? Pillowcases make the perfect gift. Choose a novelty fabric that would please the recipient, or a holiday theme fabric, a coordinating fabric for the cuff and another that compliments both fabrics and you are ready to start.
This tutorial from Shabby Fabrics teaches you how to construct the pillowcase so that there are no exposed seams and the pillowcase edge is finished with an enclosed French seam. It you don’t want to take the time for the French seam, use your serger for a quick finish.
After making one pillowcase you will be hooked on this easy method and be on the lookout for interesting fabrics all year long to make an easy quick gift for someone special in your life. All you need to remember is 27, 9, and 3. That is 27″ for the body of the pillowcase, 9″ for the cuff, and 3″ for the trim.
