I made these about a year ago. I had two large pillows with pillowcases that had seen better days and were also not to my taste anymore. So I went out and bought this thick twill cotton and made these new pillowcases. I inserted the zipper 5 centimeters below the seam line, on the backside, which I think is better than putting it along the seam. I like how they turned out and they are very comfy for resting your head when you’re reading in bed or laying lengthwise on the couch. I like adding my self-made stuff to my modest house decoration :-)
heavy twill cotton. Back side is natural cotton (not dyed). Zipper.
