Shabby Chic Pillowcase Instructions:

Save Print

  • Wash & Dry Fabric. 2 yards for Main Pillow Case (floral pattern) and 1/2 yard for Hem/Trim (blue stripes)
  • Cut the Main Pillow Case @ 26 in. (length) X 21 in. (width). 
  • Cut the Hem fabric @ 58 in. (length) X 10 in. (width). 
  • Then fold the Hem fabric in half length wise (right sides facing on the inside) and sew along the edge, combining both sides. Turn right sides in and iron press. 
  • Create a Ruffle with Hem Fabric. Without backstitching-you sew a straight line, leaving a lot of thread at each end. Use that excess thread to pull both sides of the string to create a ruffle. 
  • Line up for Bias Tape, Main Pillow and Hem and sew along edge. Double stitch for extra strength. 
  • Sew along the edges (right sides facing inward). Sew edges until you have a finished body of 28 in. (length) X 20 in. (width).
  • Turn inside out and celebrate because you just made an adorable, Anthropology-worthy pillowcase!
