But, to help out this year, I’m making everyone a travel-sized pillow, to make room for other important things we need to take (like the kitchen sink! Ha!)
And don’t think you can get off the hook by making just one of these…everyone in the family is going to want one!
And there’s really no reason not to whip up a handful, because they are so fun and easy!
- 1/2 yard cotton fabric for the main body of the pillowcase
- 1/3 yard minky fabric for the edge (Because Minky is 60 inches wide, you’ll have enough length for 2 pillowcases.)
With right sides together, sew the two cotton pieces together.
Finish off the edge with a serger or a zig zag stitch.
Open up and press the seam flat. Now, lay the minky down lengthwise, right side up, and place the cotton fabric on top, also right side up.
Pin all the way to the edge, every inch, doing your best to keep the minky from shifting as you go. Head over to your sewing machine and you are going to sew the edge you just pinned. If you have a walking foot, it will help the layers feed through your machine evenly.
