Hand Made: Scalloped Edge Pillowcases
I found some giant (1″) rickrack in the fabric store the other day and knew I just had to use it for something. My mind immediately went toward showcasing the scalloped edge only, allowing it to take on a classic, sculptural element rather than a be too young or sweet.
I love that the black against white makes it feel like more of a luxe edging that pops.
It wasn’t too difficult, and you don’t need a sewing machine! If you like where this is going, KEEP READING for the full instructions!
- 1″ or 3/4″ rickrack (mine is from Joann Fabrics)
- Stitch Witchery
- A plain pillowcase
- An iron
ONE cut into and around the very edge of the pillowcase’s folded hem. TWO turn either side of the edge inward and THREE iron into place .
FOUR sandwich the rickrack in between two pieces of stitch witchery. FIVE nestle the rickrack and surrounding stitch witchery into the ironed edge of your pillowcase.
Work in sections. Don’t try to align all of the rickrack and fusing together at the beginning. Just arrange about 5 inch sections, iron to fuse, then move onto the next 5 inch section.
And you’re done! Enjoy your new pillowcases, or move onto something else (I’m thinking of doing an entire duvet)!
Have a marvelous Thursday!
