Materials:

  •     1 pillow case set per window (Make sure to measure your windows. Standard cases are 29", king cases are 39")
  •     Tension rod or other type of rod
  •     Curtain ring clips
  •     Ribbon, ric rac, beaded trim or other embellishment
  •     Seam ripper
  •     Thread
  •     Gem-Tac or other permanent adhesive (You need this if you are using velvet ribbon)

NOTE: If you are using velvet ribbon you won't want to sew the ribbon down the middle. Instead use the permanent adhesive. If you like, you can also use it to adhere beaded trim. It is machine washable after about 24hrs.


Instructions:

  1. Open side seam at the location of hem stitch line. Open just enough to slip in your embellishment.

What a neat idea. I have extra pillow cases that match my spread so I may make these for my master bath. That will carry the theme thru and tie it all together. I could even make a valance for the shower curtain. You have started my creative juices flowing. Thank you for sharing.

SOO easy!! I'm going to do this!!
