Calling all sewers, I really need your help!!!!

Post by cherylann16 » Thu Jun 06, 2019 2:37 pm

I would like to make a pillow case. The exact measurements are as follows: Main fabric - 31x43 inches, Border -11x43 inches and Trim- 1-3/4 x43inches. My Main fabric is 21x45 inches. Could you possibly help me re-calculate the border and trim measurements to accomodate of my Main fabric?

With sincere gratitude,

Cheryl

Cheryl,

It has been a few years since I made a pillowcase, so I googled some help for you, and found this YouTube video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFTJh1-9ezA It has a table to help you know how much fabric you need for the size you're making.

As for recalculating the border, you'd need to add 10 inches (according to the table in the video) to it.
