No matter what your decor, Country style or Contemporary, one thing that remains basically the same are your pillowcases! The only thing that differs is the fabric and how you trim it.
I am redecorating my bedrooms so I thought I could use some of my re-do projects to help you learn to sew. On my sewing list are curtains, a duvet cover and bed-skirt, and pillowcases.
This week we are sewing pillowcases. This a a perfect project if you are learning. to sew.
Just 2 to 4 bits of fabric cut in rectangles, and a small amount of trimming. Join me while we sew two different pillowcases, one country and one more shabby chic style.
For each pillowcase one yard of the primary fabric, 1/4 yard of a contrasting fabric with 1 1/4 yard trim about 1″ wide; for the country case you will need 1 yard of the primary fabric and 1 1/2 gathered eyelet trim 3 /1/2″ – 4″ wide and a secondary trim about 1″ wide.
Your choice of fabric will determine it’s style, calico for country, an elegant silk with tonal stripes would definitely be a more modern style.
Are you ready to sew something pretty for your bedroom?
