I had made pillowcases before and loved how simple and beautiful they turned out. For this project my sister gave me two different fabrics that she wanted two sets of king size pillowcases made out of. The challenge for me was figuring out how to make both sets out of just one strip of fabric.
I ended up taking one of the pillowcases we had at home that were store bought and made them from that.
I basically folded a 23 x 86 piece of fabric, folded in half lengthwise and sewed down one side and across what became the bottom of the pillowcase. I then folded down the top to the inside of the case by 6 inches. Very simple but they ended up being really pretty.
