Well, back to the pillowcase. Today I made a prototype satin pillowcase for my daughter. I think she is going to try to make some to have available for her customers to purchase. See, this hair guru in Halifax said when you sleep on pillow in a cotton pillow case, the cotton grabs the ends of the hair and moves them out of place. You know.... Bedhead!!
This is a simple pillowcase and the starting dimensions of the piece of fabric that I used was 44" x 36". I folded in half with wrong sides together and stitched one short end and one long end. Then trimmed the seam and turned the other way out and enclosed the seam with another seam. (French Seam). With a 3" cuff, folded under twice, stitched 5/8" along the edge to make a flange. This yields a finished pillow case of about 21" x 30". It will have no raw edges exposed and will fit a standard pillow.
I got thinking that this might be nice to make for a senior in a home who still gets their hair done once a week...
Me....As most of you know, my hair is so short, that I don't worry about preserving my DO.
