Making new pillowcases for our king sized pillows has been on my mental to do list for ages. So, when I came across this wonderfully detailed tutorial for envelope style pillow cases in different sizes the other day, I decided it was finally time I gave it a try.

I first made a set of pillowcases carefully following the directions (pillow on the bottom is one of them). Yes, I actually read all the steps a few times to make sure there will be as little seam ripping as possible :).

Once I made the first set, I decided to add more fabrics to my pillowcases as well as add a thin contrasting strip to the cuff. I did my own math for this second design, but pretty much followed the original directions. I love that there are absolutely no raw edges in these pillowcases - french seams definitely make for such professional looking results.

And then, just because pillowcases seem to be quite addictive, I made this Pokemon one for my daughter. This time, however, I used magic pillowcase tutorial. What a fun way to make a pillowcase. And, once again, no raw edges here either, ♥ ♥ ♥.

I highly recommend you give both of these tutorials a try if you ever want to make your own pillowcases. You won't be disappointed, I promise :).
