sewing instructions:

Create a template for the pillowcase!

Measure the width and height of the pillow and write down the measurements!

For the cutting you have to calculate the following dimensions: height (height of the cushion + 3 cm); Width (width of the cushion + 3 cm);

Then cut out two pieces of fabric!

Decide on which side the zipper should be used and cut the zipper by the meter to fit! The zipper should be cut 8 cm shorter than the side length!

Overcast all edges of the two fabric pieces either with an overlock machine or a zigzag stitch! Then stitch the seam you want to sew on the zipper, 4 cm at each end together!

Put the zipper on the newly stitched seam so that the teeth point to the top of the fabric! Then insert a zipper foot into the sewing machine! Then stitch the right side of the zipper and then the left one! Use matching yarn for this!

Lay the pieces of fabric right to right and stitch with 1.5 cm seam allowance along the edge of the three open side edges! Secure the beginning and end of the seam with back and forth stitching!

It is best to cut the seam allowance in the corners at an angle, so that the corners are nicely formed!

The new pillowcase is ready!

You already have a new cushion cover that you can wash!
