Make a French Seam Pillowcase Set in Under 30 Minutes!

Are you making, or planning to make, a quilt to give as a gift? Sweeten the gift by including matching pillowcases (don’t forget to buy enough extra fabric!).

Or, simply give pillowcases. Just about everyone will enjoy a set of pillowcases with fabrics selected just for them.

French Seam Pillowcase Tutorial

While it may take a bit more than 30 minutes, this method will quickly produce pillowcases with hidden seams. Pillows will slip into the cases easily, since there’s nothing to snag them on. Plus, the pillowcases will wear well with no exposed seams to fray over time.

Three fabrics are used to make the pillowcases: the main fabric, an accent strip and the cuff. Imagine all the beautiful fabric combos you can create!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
