Thanks to Virginia who showed us how to make this travel pillowcase at our Fall retreat. And also thanks to Laurel who “wrote” up the instructions.
1 – 141/2 X WOF (body). Trim salvages
1 – 8 X 141/2 (cuﬀ)
1. Lay the 8 X 141/2 cuﬀ face up. Then roll the body fabric up from the long end and align with the top edge of cuﬀ fabric – RST. This is the burrito style of pillowcase making. Fold the cuﬀ fabric up over the rolled up fabric and align with the top edge of cuﬀ. Seam all three layers together. Pull the burrito fabric out of the cuﬀ and iron seam. Top stitch along this seam.
2. Hem the other end of the body fabric by turning the edge twice and seaming.
3. With RST, fold the cuﬀed end up until the body (with cuﬀ) measures 20”. Then fold the hemmed edge over at the cuﬀ. Hemmed edge will be over the cuﬀ. Seam both sides of the pillow – zigzag or surge the edges to ﬁnish seams.
4. Turn right side out.
