Make a simple flanged pillow sham. With an envelope back the flange reverses extra fabric around the edges. You can use decor fabric quilting, whit, cotton or sheeting. So, let's get started. The materials you'll need are two yards of fabric, I'm using a yard of to coordinating premier prints, Harvard Canal Club and Shiloh Canal green Club, one yard of Pelin fusible fleece, which is optional, scissors thread, pins, a fabric marker, and an iron. If you plan on washing the Sham covers in the future, always pre-wash the fabric, many decor fabrics are dry clean only, but you may be able to get away with machine washing, especially with cotton fabrics. The fabric may shrink when you wash it, I'm cutting at 29 by 23-inch piece from the front fabric.
That's the size of the pillow, plus double the size of the flange, I'm using standard size pillow, which is 20 by 26 inches. This pillow will have a one and a half inch flange, but you can go smaller or larger up to three inches. We suggest making pillow covers that are one or two inches smaller than the pillow, so it has a nice full. Look. I'm making this pillow cover. One inch smaller cut a piece of fusible fleece. That's one inch smaller in both directions. This is optional, but it prevents the corners from looking sloppy. This is especially important for larger flanges. The back will have two overlapping pieces which create an envelope opening cut a piece of the back fabric, that's the same height as the front piece in eight inches longer. For me, that's 35, by 23 inches, I'm using a coordinating fabric on the back draw a line. Halfway across the width and cut Center, the fusible fleece, on the back of the front fabric and iron to attach it and each of the back pieces folds over the end, half an inch and iron fold.
Another half an inch and iron again make sure you do this on the ends that will overlap so close to the inner fold of these edges. With the front piece facing up line up the back pieces facing down pin in place. So around the entire piece, with a half inch seam allowance set the stitch at the beginning and end clip, the corners turn. The Sham cover right side out and poke out the corners I earn to flatten the edges on your sewing machine measure, 1/2 inches out from the needle and place a piece of tape there. If the size of your flange is different use, that measurement instead starts sewing. One and a half inches in with the edge lined up with the tape sew all the way around backstitching at the beginning and end when you get to the corners, stop one and a half inches from the edge raise the foot and turn the fabric insert. The pillow and the flange two pillow sham is done. You can customize your pillow sham any way you want if you want to make a matching duvet cover.
