Everyone appreciates a pillowcase that’s soft and comfortable, but we think they’re even better when made with Cuddle® and Luxe Cuddle® minky fabric!
We’ve featured a Cuddle® pillowcase on a previous episode of Sew Together Tuesday, so this week we’re taking this simple project a step further and creating one with an envelope-style back.
Here we've put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to sew a Cuddle® minky pillow sham (we affectionately call it a "pillow sack"), complete with Teresa’s video tutorial and free downloadable pattern.
It can be used to really add some visual interest to your bedroom and home decor, and it’s removable so you can make a few sets and change them up for the seasons or depending on your mood.
Let’s get started!
