Flannel Pillowcases

Knowing that I wouldn’t have time to knit for everyone this Christmas, I turned to my sewing machine. In a Ravelry discussion I had already gotten the idea of winter flannelette pillowcases, and then on a sewing site I frequent I saw a link to a free pattern for cuffed pillowcases. I knew I had found the project for this year.

I love the edging between the cuff and the body of the pillowcase – it adds such a polished touch to the final project. The pattern comes from here, and it was easy to follow and quick as promised. I plan on making three more sets of these at least.

So if you’re looking for a sewing project that will only take a couple of hours to complete and will please almost everyone who receives a set — this one is a winner.


  1. Gorgeous! I love the fabric design and you’re right, the edging does just finish it off beautifully. Ros

  2. Nice!! I’ll say it’s a winner. They are gorgeous. Who wouldn’t love to receive such a delightful gift? They totally look professionally-made.

    (… off to the fabric store to find some pretty flannel …). Thx for the link :)

  3. oooooh! what a good idea!
    i am totally filing this away for next year! or maybe for birthdays… maybe everyone will get flannel pillowcases for their birthday this year!!

  4. Fun! I need a sewing machine…

  5. What a great idea! I am going to pass this along to my daughter-in-law. I love how you picked out material that looks like Fair Isle knitting!

  6. Very pretty! One of these days I am going to have to buy a sewing machine.

  7. Love these! I didn’t look at the pattern, but wonder if it is the same one my mom used (and she taught me to use)…because they have that little ‘cuff inset’ as well that I think makes the case (no pun intended). And I agree that flannel pillowcases are a perfect gift idea that can be sewn up quite quickly!

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
