I have interest in pillow making  of all sort for a living...being surfing the net and stumbled unto u,can you be of help to me on how to start off?

@Amanda--sounds like your measurements or seam allowances were off a bit, but that's an easy fix. Just take the slipcover back off the pillow and put another seam on all four sides to take the pillow cover 'in'. Sewing all four sides ensures the opening stay centered in the back.

My 10yr old daughter just made a pillow case for her bedroom from these instructions, it doesn't get better than that. Thank you.

Thank You!  This was the easiest and best instructions for pillow slipcovers I found.  Turned out perfect.

Nice quick how to story :-) If it turns out that you do not have an old pillow form to use I'd like to recommend http:/// for an assortment of down and feather pillow forms made in the States.
