Magic Pillowcases

I recently sewed up these Magic Pillowcases and let me tell you: they are so easy to sew, and so soft to the touch, especially when made in flannel. These prints are from our Blast Off! Flannel collection (but Blast Off! also comes in flat cotton as well). The blue accent combined with the orange rim and fun focal Space Party-Black print made my daughter really excited. I jokingly told her they were for me!

If you’ve ever sewn this particular pillowcase pattern, then you know that the pattern is written kind of strange because it’s all rolled up at first–then you sew together the pieces and turn it right-side out, just like magic.  You can download your FREE pillowcase pattern here. They also make perfect gifts–sew up several in very little time.

I began by sewing together the main fabric (the largest piece).

Pin the accent color piece.

Fold over all the layers and pin it all together, matching up the raw-edges.

Once your seam is sewn, carefully pull the outside fabrics so it’s right-side-out.

    This is the first project I taught to our teen girls at church, who wanted to learn to sew. I called it the Magic Burrito pillowcase! LOL!!

    The “burrito” pillowcase is really a funny name, I love it!

    Thanks for the step-by-step photos. I have seen this pattern several times here at CT but have never made it. The photos really help visualize the process!
