Step Two

Take one of your back pieces of fabric and press it on one edge at 1/2 inch and then repeat it flipping the edge over again and pressing a second time. Repeat this step on your second back piece of fabric as well. Sew along the middle of the fold, 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric.

Step Three

Lay the back pieces of your fabric on top of your front piece of fabric, connecting the raw edges. The front piece should be right side up and the backside is right side out. The patterned sides should be touching.

Step Four

Pin and sew the edges of the fabric together, leaving the middle pocket open. Then flip your pillowcase right side out and slide your pillow inside of the pillow cover.
