On a recent shopping trip I bough myself a couple of bargain pillowcases. I only opened them last Friday (after chucking the receipts) and realised that they were crazy huge, continental size 26" square!
I had wanted standard pillowcases so was a little annoyed at myself as they were very pretty.
Normal pillowcase on the right, continental on the left.
Only one thing for it, I cut them into 6" squares.
My new pillows, I was quite pleased with these I have never attempted a pillow case before.
Due to the odd size I didn't have enough fabric to make a full back so I had to patch it with white cotton at each end.
I stripped the bed a day early this week as I was itching to try them out, I would like to report that they were very comfy and are still intact!
