Here’s the perfect Valentine gift. Terri LaRue and I worked up this pattern YEARS ago 🙂 I used The Makers Fabric Collection from Cori Dantini for the body. (Gina has it at The Little General.) So sweet! Enjoy!
Cut three pieces of fabric. The big body of the pillowcase is 27″ long. The pink trim is 2″ and the cuff is 9.”
Press the pink trim in half, wrong sides together. Do the same to the green cuff.
Place the body, WRONG SIDE UP, on your work surface. Line up the raw edge of the body with the raw edge of the cuff and then the trim.
Pin along the edge and then stitch a 1/4″ seam.
Press the pink trim and the green cuff up to the right side of the fabric.
Pin the pink trim to the body of the pillowcase. A little spray starch helps keep everything nice and flat.
Top stitch along the edge.
It should look like this.
Trim off the selvedge along both edges.
To make a nice finished “French seam,” fold the pillow case WRONG sides together. My friend Debbie is responsible for showing me this technique! Thanks Deb!
Stitch a 1/8″ seam along the edge.
Turn the pillow case inside out and then take a 1/4″ seam along the edge and the top.
Give it a good press and you are finished! Happy Valentine’s Day!
