How to Make Quick Pillowcases

Patchwork Pillowcase

I purchased pillowcases and dressed them up. You can do it either way, make or purchase.

Using a purchased set of Standard pillowcases.

Measure your pillowcase and cut squares to fit.
Mine is 40" around on each case.

Cut 40 - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square

Sew into 2 rows of 20 each - Sew the ends of each row together to form a circle
