The pipping piece I cut 2 inches and folded it in half and pressed it.
The body of the pillow (blue) I measured againist my pillow to make sure it was large enough. I made these for King size pillows and they fit perfect.
Lay your fabrics out like this, accent piece, body piece, pipping and then fold, fanning the body piece onto the center of the accent piece.
Fold the accent piece over everything and pin it together. Starting in the center and working your way to the edges. Make sure that you line all up all your edges. There will be 5 layers of fabric to pin.
Right off the sewing machine. Now the fun part. Pull the body out of the accent color to reveal what clean lines you just made. This is really nice because it won't fray!
Look how great that turned out. This is the pillowcase waiting to be closed. Line up the edges, you may want to pin on the seam where the pipping meets the accent fabric to make sure that they line up on the side seam. Just start sewing at the accent go up the side and across the top.
