Pajama Party Pillowcase

Our granddaughter is at that fun age when little girls have sleep overs, paint their toenails (strange colors!) and get all giggly at the drop of a hat. I thought it might be fun for her to have a special Pajama Party pillowcase to take with her.

I should issue a warning…these are so much fun to make you might not be able to stop!   This method, called either the Magic Pillowcase or Burrito Pillowcase, has been around for a while but I think adding May Arts ribbon makes them extra special.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

Layer your fabrics and May Arts Ribbon right side up in this order: cuff, main fabric, ribbon. Match the raw edges and pin to secure.

Now make your burrito!

 Pajama Party Pillowcase

Roll the main fabric stopping just short of the ribbon or about the center of the cuff fabric.

Take the cuff fabric (blue) and bring it up over the roll, match the raw edges so you have a tube and pin. The roll should be free not pinned.

Sew a ¼” seam along the raw edges. Now grab the main fabric and pull it out of the tube…

Your cuff, ribbon and main fabric are now sewn together! Magic!

Press the seams flat. Now it’s time to add the pretty ruffle trim.

Pin the Elastic Ruffle ribbon under the free side of the polka dot ribbon. Sew along the edge to secure.

I French seamed the pillowcase so there wouldn’t be any raw edges showing on the inside of the pillowcase. This step isn’t necessary but makes for a nicer finish.

Fold the pillowcase in half WRONG sides together. Pin along the side and bottom edges. Sew a scant ¼” seam around the edge and bottom. (Remove your pins as you sew)

Now, turn the pillowcase inside out. Press seams flat. Sew a ¼” seam along the sides and bottom. Your raw edges are now enclosed. Turn right side out, press and done!

Isn’t this trim just the cutest?
