  1. Begin by measuring your pillow seam to seam.
  2. Take the measurement add 1/2″ and that becomes your new measurement. For instance my pillow was 18″ x 18″.  I added my seam allowance and got 18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″
  3. The back of the pillowcase project will need 2 pieces. Please follow this equation: Take the width + seam allowance of the pillow( Mine is 18 1/2″ divide in half to get 9 1/4″) Take 9 1/4″ + 4=13 1/4″
  4. The  2 back pieces of my pillowcase are 18 1/2″ W x 13 1/4″ L
