Follow this magic pillowcase tutorial for simple to make pillowcases that turn out so cute. I chose bright colors and fun prints for a pajama party photo booth.
This is the fabric needed. I bought 1 yard each of 4 different patterns and mixed them up. The fabric is 45″ wide.
3/4 yard for the main fabric (27 inches)
1/4 yard for the cuff in contrasting fabric (9 inches)
2 inch trim fabric or ribbon trim (optional)
I cut the fabric at 27″ leaving 9″ for the cuff of another pillowcase. I cut the fabric for all 4 cases at the same time. This is where the fun begins. Place the main fabric right side up then place the contrasting fabric face down (right sides together) on top of the main fabric. Line the fabrics up and pin into place.
Open cuff and roll main body of pillow up to the cuff leaving an inch or so.
Fold the cuff area around the body of the pillow (right sides together).
Line the fabric edges up and pin into place. Sew 1/4″ seam along pinned side.
Now is the super fun part. Take the inside body of the pillow and pull out. You might have to work it out a bit. The cuff will flip right side out.
Ta-da! The cuff now has no outside seams.
Fold the case right sides together and pin into place. Sew a 1/4″ seam.
Turn pillowcase right side out.
The magic pillowcases came together really quickly. I think they would be fun to make for gifts, camping, girls camp, contrasting bedding. My daughter has claimed a couple of them and the other 2 will be for guests.
Like I said, these were in a fun pajama party photo booth for a bloggers night. The only problem is, I didn’t get any pictures with them in the photo booth. I will try to get some pictures from my friends and add them here later. Here are a few pictures as I promised. Pics from: Mine For the Making, The V Spot, Tatertots and Jello Such fun pictures!
The sweet backdrop and banner were made by Jen at Tatertots and Jello. She is so talented! Jen has even made the Pennant printable available on her blog.
