Minky Pillowcase {{Tutorial}}

Anyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely LOVE minky fabric!  If it wasn’t so expensive, I am pretty sure I would incorporate it into everything I make! (:  My mom made my kiddos pillowcases recently with some super cute fabrics!  I instantly knew that I wanted to make pillowcases for my kiddos as well…..but with minky fabric instead!  They turned out AMAZING!!!

  • 5/8 Yard Minky Fabric
  • 1/4 Yard Minky Fabric For Cuff


  • Trim the 5/8 yard minky fabric to 21” x 54”
  • Fold the right sides of the fabric together and pin down both sides {{minky fabric is VERY slippery….pin generously}}.

  • Sew down both sides of the fabric {{the fold is the end}}.

  • Pin the short sides together to form a circle {{pin generously}} & sew together.

  • Fold the cuff fabric in half lengthwise with wrong sides together and pin to the top of the pillowcase so the seam is to the inside.  {{pin generously}}

That’s it… simple, yet so adorable!!! I ended up making one for my daughter, one for my niece and one for my nephew!   Of course I feel the need to show them off! (;

To make them gift worthy, I tied them with matching ribbon!

I love that fabric too! You just can't stop touching it! :o) When I was pregnant with The Kid, I made a crib quilt and the bumper pad with that stuff. It's a pain in the butt to sew with, but it's so stinkin' cute!

Beautiful, Alisa! I'm not familiar with this fabric, will have to inquire next time I'm at the local JoAnn's!

Brilliant! I don't know why I never thought of doing a pillowcase with minky, but you're right - you can't stop touching it. Thinking I might need to make a fabric store run today and make one for my granddaughter. :)

I can only imagine how soft this would be perfect for a pillowcase
