Sew a Pillowcase

A small wheel rustle adorns this removable pillowcase, closed with two small buttons. On the program, nothing very complicated, except the realization buttonholes, that using your machine will be a breeze.


The data measurements are for a square pillow 50cm, but you can adapt this pattern to another dimension.

Fabric Feature

For a square pillow 50 cm side, you need 1 m20 fabric by 55. To achieve the wheel, you need a 3m tape but you can also assemble multiple tapes for that length.

The Cup

On the back of the fabric, draw a square of 50 cm square, a rectangle of 50 cm x 35 cm and another 50 cm x 25 cm. Cut three pieces of 2 cm path.
In other tissue, draw the strips of width 10cm, the total length of 3 m.


The flaps on the back of the pillowcase should overlap to securely hold the pillow in its envelope, says Epillowcases. This is why we add the pieces that make up the back, 10cm more than the actual size of the cover.

The Pillow In 4 Steps

Overcast square and two rectangles on 3 sides.

Step 1-Hems The Back Of The Pillow

By folding the fabric against against against, mark the first iron and then a second fallback 0.5cm, on one of the long sides of each rectangle. Sew two seams on the machine.

Step 2-The ButtonhoLE

On the largest rectangles, 2 cm hem, draw buttonholes to 15 cm on each side. Place the buttonhole foot on your machine and run 1.5 cm buttonholes.

Step 3-Prepare The Flying Belt

Just like step 1, on one side, make the hems of the belt for driving. To make the gathers, set the maximum stitch length on your machine and sew all the way to the other side of the band. Take a son to frown.

Step 4-The Assembly

Place against place, put your band gathered around the square, pin and baste. Then overlay the back of the pillowcase rectangles, place against place, placing the buttonhole rectangle below. Pin and sew around the pillowcase.


Turn the pillowcase and sew the buttons opposite the buttonholes.
