Today I have a great 15 Minute Pillowcase with French Seams tutorial for you!
As most of you know, I love lined garments. Why? Because I like things to look as beautiful on the inside as they do on the out. However, sometimes lining projects is not necessary or practical and that’s where french seams come in. A french seam encases the raw edge of the fabric so you have a beautiful, neat and tidy, finished look. And that’s where the 15 Minute Pillowcase with French Seams comes in……..
No joke, these pillowcases will not take you more than 15-minutes and they will be gorgeous! I have seen a lot of pillowcase tutorials, but when my mom told me about this unique technique that she learned from her quilting group, I knew I had to share.
Consider making a pair of these as a gift or perhaps make some in seasonal fabrics to pull out throughout the year. I don’t sew much for myself, let alone my husband, so this set of pillowcases is staying right on our bed. A little gift for us.
