Most of my pillows are the standard size so I can normally find pillowcases with no problems. Except for one which happens to be my most favorite. In fact, in the recent year I’ve noticed that every time I’m away and rest my head on a different pillow I basically end up with no sleep. I’m addicted to my beloved pillow!
My mom made it for me and I’ve been using it for years and it looks as if is new. So this pillowcase tutorial is for that particular pillowcase size that fits my beloved pillow but the principle is quite the same, no matter the size. I love easy sewing ideas and this lovely project fits the bill perfectly!
