Toddler Pillowcase Tutorial
- Cut Minky strip 33" x 8.5"
- Cut rectangle 13.5 " x 33"
Using your rotary blade or scissors cut 2 rectangles 13.5" tall by 33" wide
Place the folded minky strip on the right edge of the vertical rectangle with the edges all of the minky and the cotton lined up and pin every 1/2" - 1" apart.
Next sew a zig zag seam along the pinned minky and cotton edges making sure to sew with the minky on the bottom. A walking foot is helpful, but not necessary for this short project. Since minky is a stretchy fabric, sewing with it on the bottom will allow the feed dogs on the machine to feed it faster than the top cotton layer. A zig zag seam will also help keep the minky from getting a bit wonky with its cotton counter part and reduce the bulk.
