Shades of yellow - Home accessories - part 7 - Embroidered pillow case

Embroidered pillow case, 50 x 50 cm

Material for 1 pillow case:

  • 53 x 53 cm fabric (cotton, vicsose, silk,...with canvas structure)
  • 1 zipper, 45 cm
  • Wool yarn leftovers (I used needlepoint wool yarn)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Fabric stripe for pipe, 220 x 3 cm
  • Cotton twine for pipe 220 cm 
  • Tulle or nylon ribbon, 220 x 1 cm


Iron the fabric. Then pull the thread through the fabric, I used only normal stitches, 4 mm long   (depends on the structure of your fabric)     --> foto.

Insert the zipper on the fabric pieces which will be the back side of the pillow case.
Now prepare the pipe, app. 220 cm long.

Place the pipe between the 2 layers of your pillow case (right side should be inside) and sew around.
It is very easy with a piping foot, if you don´t have use the normal zipper foot.

Cover all endges with a tulle or nylon ribbon.

Turn the pillow case and iron it.

Make a few in different colours.
