When I was redo-ing our master bedroom, I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in the pillow case department. So I decided to create my own. Well, to be honest, all I did was embellish a pair of store bought cases.
I purchased a pair of white wrinkle free pillow cases, and then all I did was sew on some ribbon. Easy peasy.
What's that you say? You don't sew? No problem. Even someone who has never sewn can do this project. All it involves is one straight line of stitching.
Pick out a ribbon of your choice, and then simply stitch it along the seam of the pillow case edge. In my case, I decided to add pleats to my ribbon. But I am not super picky when I do this kind of thing, so I didn't fold and pin...no I didn't. I just folded the ribbon as I sewed....eyeballing it for spacing. Truly, it was soooo easy, and it turned out beautifully.
So pretty, in fact, that I use the cases more like pillow shams...they add just the right touch to my bedding. (And all for pennies!!)
Now it's your turn!!
