Sewing a Cloth Napkin Pillow Case!
How To Sew a Zippered Pillow Case With a Cloth Napkin!
Wow my time here has been limited lately and boy do I miss it! We have some fun things going on around here and I can’t wait to share them more with you later this week… Until then, I am really excited to be joining Krista from The Happy Housie for this fun Spring Hop. Today I am sharing how to take a sweet spring cloth napkin and turn it into a zippered pillow case!
Here is what I used for this project… It does require basic sewing skills, but is very simple!
- 2 Cloth Napkins (I always make my covers two inches smaller than my inserts. My inserts are 20 inches so that meant I needed my covers to be 18 inches when finished).
- Sewing Thread
- Sewing Machine and sewing foot (I used my normal sewing foot for this but I was just careful to stay close to the zipper teeth)
- Seam Ripper
- Pillowcase Zipper
Here is how I put this pillowcase together next!
I started by removing the seams with my seam ripper. I didn’t want to sew around bulky seams.
Then I cut off any additional length and width that wasn’t needed. For this specific napkin, that meant leaving about 18.5 inches all around.
I always do zippered pillow cases by starting with the zippered ends first. You can see a visual of how I sew a zipper on.
Once my zipper is sewed in place, I then turn the napkins in on each other and sew my seams on the remainder sides and top. I make sure to leave my zipper open a bit so it doesn’t get sewn shut!
When everything is sewn into place, I turn my pillow inside out and stuff it with my insert!
It is so easy and looks custom when all is said and done! I loved these napkins because they were a subtle nod to spring with the sweet birds and patterned florals.
Such an easy way to bring some spring into your home for the season!
