It's all about HEART and these ladies have plenty of it ...here is BARB from Quilted Works...and some giveaways!

Hello my name is  BARB, Madame Samm saw these on PINTEREST, and called me to ask about the fabric and of course the pillowcase, which I am told she has made a few already . 


I already had the tutorial done from another project, but it goes without saying this goes well with your theme this month of red. My store is in St. George Utah and it is called Quilted Works, if ever you are around please drop in and say HI!

We love having pillowcases to match our quilts! Here is a fun and easy tutorial that teaches you how to easily make a pretty pillowcase with an encased seam and french seams for the finished edges.
IMG_9990.JPG

Select 3 coordinating fabrics.

IMG_9911.JPG
Yardage:
  • 3/4 yard Main fabric
  • 1/8 yard narrow Trim fabric
  • 1/3 yard Hem fabric

Cut Main Fabric 25" x 40 ½"

IMG_9909.JPG

Cut Trim Fabric 2 ½” x 40 ½”

IMG_9912.JPG

Iron Trim piece in half with right sides out and raw edges together.

IMG_9914.JPG

Cut Hem Fabric 12” x 40 ½”

IMG_9913.JPG

Lay the Hem fabric with right side up, lay Trim fabric piece on top of Hem fabric.

IMG_9921.JPG

Lay right side of Main fabric DOWN on top of Trim fabric.

IMG_9925.JPG

Roll bottom of main fabric up until the bottom of the Hem fabric can be seen.

IMG_9929.JPG

Fold the Hem fabric OVER the top of all layers. Pin everything in place.

IMG_9934.JPG

Sew them all together with 1/4” seam.

IMG_9937.JPG

Pull the pillowcase out from inside of the Hem fabric.

IMG_9944.JPG

Press the fabrics flat.

IMG_9954.JPG

Trim fabrics to make sure all edges are lined up and that they measure 40 ½” wide.

IMG_9958.JPG

With right sides out, pin the seam to make sure the trim piece will be lined up.

IMG_9963.JPG

Sew a seam slightly less than 1/4" seam along the sides and bottom.

IMG_9967.JPG

Turn the pillow case wrong sides out.

IMG_9976.JPG

Sew a 1/4" seam along the sides and bottom, making sure to back stitch at the beginning and end.

IMG_9982.JPG

Now you have just created a very nice “French Seam.” The seam on the outside of your pillowcase looks just like a normal, finished seam, but its raw edges (underneath) have been encased in fabric for a finished look and to help protect them from fraying.

IMG_9984.JPG

Turn pillow case right side out and ENJOY!

IMG_9990.JPG

Look how darling it looks with a matching quilt!

  1. In just over a year I have made 16 pillowcases. I use this same method that was distributed with the fabrics at my LQS and they are so much fun!! Thanks for putting the tut out there again. And thanks for the giveaway - always NEED more fabric for fancy cases.

  2. I haven't made any pillowcases... yet. But with this great tutorial, I am sure I will be making some soon! Thanks to everyone for the great giveaway prizes and the chance to win!

  3. Oh, those ADORNit girls! Such cute things! Thanks so much for all of your generosity! I'd be thrilled to win any of the fabrics in this post!

    My husband was born with a heart defect - one that kids' cardiologists are most familiar with, so when he goes to the doctor, it's to the pediatric cardiologist - at the childrens' hospital - so every time we go, we take pillowcases and blankets - so last year, I made at least 60 pillowcases and at least 20 small quilts!

    I use the method shown in the tutorial!

    Happy Love Day!

  4. I have yet to make any pillowcases but it is definitely on my to do list. They look easy and you can make them to fit any decor.

  5. Truth be known, I've never made a pillow case, but from looking at these blogs I am inspired to make some for my girls. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have made about 20 pillow cases using that method..They are so fast and easy..Love the heart fabric Barb used with LOVE YOU on the trim..

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have probably make at least a dozen pillowcases ... for all my nieces and nephews, MIL and FIL, DH and myself. This is the method I use too - they turn out great! Sometimes I make the accent strip narrower - cut at 1" so 1/4 in shows - or ricrac. Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I use this method all the time. I do stitch the free end of the contrast trim down since it tends to get all rumpled in the washing machine.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Thanks for the tutorial! I haven't made any pillowcases - yet! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have made approx. 15 pillowcases in my patchwork-time, and soon I have to make some more because we have ordered a brand new sofa for our livingroom. And that calls for new pillows! I will love to win those nice fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm sewing new pilows for every season, so it's time for the new :) So far there was about 10. Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've made a lonely little one!
    But I can't wait to try this method.
    Love the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I too use this method. Love it!
    How many have I made? LOL!! Hundreds, actually. I have 4 grandchildren 600 miles away. I send $ plus 2(mom and dad) for EVERY occasion! New Years eve, Valentine's St. Patrick's day, Easter.......for the past 5 years. This was such a hit that our quilt group has taken on the local Toys for Tots group and try to give a pillowcase to every child on their list. This is a great gift for all kinds of occasions.......sick friends,birthdays,kids sleepovers, kids birthday party favors.......

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great pic-torial, Barb! My girls and I have made dozens of these pillowcases using this method. We love to make them to match our quilts, or sometimes just because we find some great fabric. I made one for my carpenter husband from some fun woodworking novelty prints, along with matching jammie bottoms :).

    I've taught this method for years to 4-H kids just learning to sew - the perfect project, and the kids love it! You can learn lots of skills on this simple project. And like ♥Duff, for a guild activity night we produced 40 or so to give to our local Women's center.

    A matching pillowcase is also a great way to store quilts, and I've also used them to wrap a quilt as a gift.

    ReplyDelete
  26. While I'd LOVE to be able to say I'd made dozens of pillowcases, I have to say I've made... zero. It's never too late to start, however! I can't wait to make some!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks so much for the easy to follow tutorial. I can't wait to try it! Your fabric choices are great too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. ive made 3 but i love seeing a blow by blow of this roll up method!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I must be truthful...I haven't made a pillowcase in over 30 years. The last set I made was when my husband and I attended Lamaze classes for our second child. I do have good intentions though, and feel very inspired by this great tutorial! Be blessed! And thanks for the opportunity to win great prizes!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Looks like a great, easy way to make pillow cases. Thank you for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I haven't made pillowcases for a long time. Thanks for the tutorial. I will be using the french seam next time.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have made 30+ pillow cases in the last two months. My obsession started with my cousin, who was in the hospital with leukemia. I saw a kit at our craft warehouse of hunky men. I thought it would cheer her up! Since she is a little sassy, I made her a "Maxine" pillowcase as well. Then, I was off and running. I must say that there is something special about "Adornit" fabric. I love it! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have only made three pillowcases so far. The Nana loves hers! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I haven't made any pillowcases yet, but I've bought fabric for about 20! Need to get busy! Thanks for the great tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have made 6 sew far and would love to make a few more with those lovely fabrics ...... or some of my own if i do not win. Great tut on the pillow case, it is an easy one to wip up. thanks for sharing and having a give away

  36. So far, I've made 7 or 8 pillowcases using this same technique. Two were for my son ( 36 years old), made with Dr Seuss fabric and the others from patriotic fabric for Quilts Of Valor. Thanks so much for a chance to win. All of the tutorials are so helpful and even if you've been quilting for a long time, there's always something new to learn. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great giveaway. I haven't made any pillowcases but would love to get started by winning your giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you for the great tutorial! I think I've made probably about a dozen pillowcases but never this kind. This tute makes it looks very easy and I will have to give it a try. I like the idea of a pillowcase with a quilt.

  39. Great tutorial. I have to give these a try!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have made no pillowcases using this technique. But I have made little dresses with a band around the bottom using this technique.

    I really really like the result. One was done just this way. One was modified so that the band was more finished inside than French seam allows. The rest of the skirt does have French seam.

    Great approach!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I had seen this way of making pillowcases before but never had made any. However, just might make a couple if I win anything. Thank you all for this opportunity.

  47. I have made 5 pillowcases so far. Thanks for the tutorial and the generous prizes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have made 7 as thanksgiving favors one year. But not with this method which is so much better. I've tried to understand the French seam directions on other blogs and never could quite figure it out. This, on the other hand, is a great tute and I get it. Thanks to all! I'll be making several more!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love the fabric! I've made over 50 pillowcases for kids with cancer and over 20 for Quilts of Valor for the wounded soldiers! Then there are those for friends and family! I love making them! Your tut is great - no question the best I've seen! Thanks for your generosity!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've only made four pillowcases thus far, but I am looking forward to more that will match some quilts I'm finishing up.

  52. I haven't made any pillowcases yet, but I sure would like to! This looks like a fun and easy way to do it - thanks for the great tutorial and for the chance to win, too!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have never made a pillowcase, but now I'm inspired. I love the Adornit fabric. Thank you for the great tutorial, they look sew easy. I think I have my work cut out for me. A pillowcase would be perfect to give with a quilt, it would match and could be used to keep the quilt folded up in. Happy Valentine's Day!!!!! ;-> Toni Anne

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is a fantastic tutorial.

    I actually haven't sewn a pillowcase since I was a little girl and that was most of what I sewed- I didn't know how to make anything else. But mine were not this fancy.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have made 3 using this same method. They always turn out so cute! The fabric is lovely... my birthday is Valentines Day... so maybe I get an extra point?!?! haha!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I haven't made any pillow cases yet, although I have been thinking about making some. Thanks to the tutorial I will be sewing up some pillow cases.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow, I'm not sure how many I've made -- about 2 dozen I would guess. With sailboat blueprint fabric for my boat building brother, fish for the fisherman's cottage, and lots of novelty for the little ones. I've only made them with the single border, though, not the added trim, so thanks for this tutorial -- they are so much nicer the way that Barb makes them, this will be my new go-to!

  64. How wonderful! I love pretty bright pillowcases! ♥♥♥

  66. Madame Samm please do not count this one but I forgot to say that I have made pillowcases for a charity project over at "All people Quilt" and I know I made at least 20 but may be a few more but at least that amount...thanks again.

  67. I have been making pillow cases for our local human services department for kids being placed in care. I have no idea how many I have made. Probably over two hundred. I have also made about fifteen for family and friends and have taught a class on how to make them at my church.

  78. I wish I had had this tut last November when I started making pillowcases for my 18 grandchildren. They each got one made especially for them with their names on them. Our 'foster' grandchildren also got one for a total of 25. This year I have made 3. I hope to make more for the grandchildren this year.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I've never made one, I'm just really learning to sew. I just made my daughter who turned 2 yesterday a heart themed quilt (I just watched alot of You Tube videos to learn how to quilt!) These pillowcases would match great with it!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I just made my first pillowcase as part of a donation project. It is crazy how this method works to keep from having any raw edges. And it is so easy to do!

  108. I have made pillowcases before but never with this method. It sure looks interesting and I like the fact that the seams are enclosed. I am definitely going to try using this tutorial.

    Thanks for such easy directions.

  122. I've made 6 pillowcases so far. I am planning on making more this weekend. My Daughter has been reminding me that I owe her a matching pillowcase for the quilt I made over a year ago.

  138. I made one the old fashioned way and once I caught hold of how to do the "hot dog" method, I made two more. However, I have to say this was the BEST visual tutorial I've seen!! Great job, my friend!

  152. For some reason I can't see the pictures. A friend tried, and she couldn't see them either!! Any suggestions?

  153. Like Jo Ellen, I'm unable to see or load the pictures. I have them posted to my Pinterest board, 'Crafts n' DIY Projects' and wanted to post the tutorial to one of my groups on Facebook ... is there a way to correct this? Thank you!
