My First Pillow & Pillowcase E-Pattern
by Lilac Lane


The Learning to Sew series of patterns by Lilac Lane assumes only the most basic of sewing skills: turning on the machine and cutting out the pattern. Even instructions for cutting are included. These patterns were tested by girls ranging in age from 7 to 12. They are ideal for children or adults as a very first sewing project.

quilting cotton: 3/4 yard main, 1/8 yard accent and 3/8 yard cuff
matching thread
2½ yards velvet or satin ribbon

Accent Pillow
1/2 yard quilting cotton matching thread
16” pillow form 2 yards velvet or satin ribbon

This is a fun first time sewing project! Create unique pillowcases and matching accent pillows to dress up your bed. Fun ribbon adds to the designer look. Instructions for creating French seams included.

Other suitable fabrics include decorator-weight cottons and corduroy although these will be a bit more difficult to work with.
