Make your own custom made pillowcase

March 29, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Learn a simple sewing project. In this class you will get to make your own customised pillowcase for a boomerang pillow, body pillow, normal pillow or a cushion cover. There are plenty of fabric choices out there depending on your preferences and intended use. You may like to try a towelling u-shaped pillowcase or a faux fur body pillow case, or just pick a pretty pattern that matches your decor.


You will learn: how to make a customised pillowcase using an old pillowcase as your template and basic sewing techniques.


What is provided: Sewing machines and thread will be provided. If you prefer to use your own sewing machine, you are welcome to bring it along.


What you need to bring: An old pillowcase for the pillow you wish to make the new cover for, 1.5 to 2 metres of the fabric of your choice (any leftovers are always useful for other projects), any materials you would like to use for decoration (i.e. piping, trims, applique pieces, etc) and if you would like to add a zip or velcro (which is not necessary but optional) a zip or velcro long enough to get the pillow out of the case.


You must wear enclosed footwear.


Suitable for: Teens and adults. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.


Workshop presenter: Chantelle Norton (details of our workshop presenters can be found on the About Us page of our website).
