I bought new bedding for my bedroom! That is always a big deal for me! Are you like me & need like 5 pillows to sleep??? Which means I needed more pillowcases then the 2 that came with the sheets. I got out the box of vintage sheets and came up with these!
This is how to make them: (this will make 1 standard size pillow)
Cut the main fabric on the fold measuring 21" high and 26" long (fold is on the long side)
I used the lace ruffle off a different sheet. I cut this 1 1/2 inches away from the ruffle seam.
Sew it to the edge of your pillow fabric. Press seams. The lace on the sheet was super crooked. I came up with a way to cover it up.
I bought this bolt of lace in the LA fabric district. 50 yards for $15!! I will be using it on everything!!
Sew the lace covering the seams.
After the trim is sewn on, fold the pillow right sides together and sew the 2 sides. I didn't sew French Seams, I just zig zagged so it wouldn't fray.
I love how they turned out! So does Marbles! He loves my new bedding and sleeps there everyday now! The quilt is Tahari from TJ Max, sheets are from Target. I was hesitant about buying sheets from Target. I LOVE these! They have super deep pockets and a double row of elastic to keep the sheets in place. And they are super soft and comfy! The quilt at the bottom of the bed was $16 at Home Goods!
