This is a pretty straightforward article to sew. There's no need for a pattern just a few simple measurements - all up, it's possible to get a pair of pillowcases from 1.5m of 115cm wide fabric.
These current pillowcases have been made from polycotton sheeting remnants.
Method used: 1.Trim away the selvedges.
2.Cut the fabric lengthwise to give two pieces of fabric 2m x 55cm(approx.).
3.On one of the short edges, fold over 1.5cm towards the wrong side of the fabric, then fold over a second time (3cm altogether), press and stitch into place.
4. On the other short edge, fold over 3cm (towards the wrong side) then another 3cm, press and stitch.
5.For this next step, I used an existing pillowcase to give me the correct pillowcase size. Lay the strip of fabric right side facing up. Take the end with the large hem and fold the strip of fabric to the size of your existing pillowcase (right sides are now together)- this will leave a flap with the narrow hem. (opening showingflap)
6.Fold the flap back over the previous two layers.
7. Stitch the two (long) sides and finish with an overlocker or zigzag stitch. Fold out. You should now have a custom size pillowcase.
Using this method I find I'm able to make inexpensive pillowcases to whatever the pillow size (some of my pillows have been longer than commercial pillowcases). The flap is long enough to tuck in and keep the pillow in place.
I made 3 pairs of pillowcases from 6m of stash fabric.
