You can sew 2 pillowcases out of 1 yard 60" wide fabric.I did it a couple of months back.When I was looking for fabric to sew a pillow case ...I like this fabric(turquoise) color & texture at first look.But its 42" wide only.So What can I Do ? ..Got an idea.. I bought contrast color fabric to go well with my fabric. Here is how I Made it...
This is the gap need to be filled with an another fabric.I cut 13 " X 18" rectangle in Brown fabric(includes seam allowances).
With right side together I joined the brown fabric to the pillowcase which is turquoise fabric.
Then finished both edges of the pillow case
fold this over the case like this
A simple method without raw edges..
