Xmas 2005: Miss Pauline
For a present for Miss Pauline, I made 6 pillow cases (2 per color) to go on size 16 pillows from Spotlight (41cm). These were to contrast with Pauline's white bed linen.
The pattern was a square size 47 x 44, cut on the fold (to get a piece 44 cm x 94cm). I also made a template of 41 x 44 cm (width of finished cushion x height of finished cushion + 1.5 cm seam x 2). To make, I folded over each short end and sewed down to neated the edges, then overlapped the long piece with the help of the smaller template and pinned to make the final cushion size. No fastenings or velcro required to keep in shut. All you need to then do is sew the two seams! Easy peasy!
