Hello! I’m back with a sewing blog post on How to Sew a Kids Pillow Case.
So, recently I’ve been busy with other things, I apologise for a late long post.
Let’s go straight to the main thing, So my niece keep want me to sew a pillow case for her and is hello kitty printed. HAHA. Can’t help it, she just love hello kitty.
Okay, firstly, I use her pillow as measurement. What I did was I took her pillow put on the fabric and cut out the size that I want according to the pillow.
Step 1: Cut 2 separate pieces or 1 long piece and fold to half.
Step 2: Once cut out, it will look like a half folded piece.Now have to adjust the piece of fabric.
Turn to wrong side of the fabric, Take one side of the piece, shift a bit longer to make the envelope cover.Now have to adjust the piece of fabric. Take one side of the piece from the top, shift a bit longer, fold down a few CM to make the envelope cover.
Align your fabric, and fold to half. Then use the pillow to measure and cut out the size that you want.Gives 1 or 2 cm seam allowance on all 3 sides. So it won’t turn out to be so tight.
Step 3: Once adjusted, take the body side put over the top which is the envelope cover and Pin it.
Step 4: Before you start sewing, make hem on the envelope cover and the body edge.Step
Step 5: Done with heming, you can start sewing all the 3 side. Remember to do a back stitch for the starting and ending edge.And you are good to go!
