How do you make a pillowcase without a sewing machine?
You can literally wrap your already covered pillow (or pillow form) up like a burrito, meaning the only thing you have to purchase is fabric from your local craft store. You simply take a square of fabric, place the pillow towards one corner, wrap, tie, and you’re done!
How much bigger should a pillowcase be than the pillow?
Opt for a pillowcase measuring 1/2 to 1 inch longer than the pillow length and 2 1/2 to 4 inches wider than the pillow width, if you’re buying a ready-made pillowcase.
How much fabric is needed for a standard pillowcase?
A finished standard pillowcase should measure about 22.5 inches by 31.5 inches, allowing for fill depth, seaming and an approximate 4-inch hem. One yard of 45-inch-wide fabric should be enough to make one standard case, if the material is preshrunk.
What is the best stitch to use to secure ripped pocket of a shirt?
On the right side of the garment, stitch over the ripped area. This can be done using a zig-zag stitch or straight stitch. You will be stitching through the interfacing or fabric at the back. My preferred method is number 2 which is a wide zig-zag over the rip.
