Mummy Pillow Case

Make a Mummy Pillow Case Tutorial in just 15 minutes!


  • 1 Yard Off White Woven not knit Fabric
  • 1 small scrap of Iron-on Vinyl or you can use black felt and a glue gun


  • Cut your fabric to 17 inches by 38 inches. Fold in thirds so that you have a 17X17 square and then flaps that overlap. If you can’t picture this see this post. Iron the folds to give you a guide when placing your strips of fabric.
  • Finish both short edges of fabric by folding under and making a narrow hem.
  • Next tear a few strips of fabric by snipping the edge and then tearing. Woven fabric will tear on grain, that is straight along the line of fabric. I use about 3 strips and each one was about 4 x 44 inches.
  • Cut and lay the strips across the middle square portion of the large fabric and pin into place.
  • Fold the flaps over and pin enclosing the scraps.
  • Sew down the edges catching all the layers of fabric.
  • Turn right side out.
  • Cut eyes out of the black vinyl and iron on. If you’ve never used iron-on vinyl it’s one of my favorite craft supplies and I have post all about how to use iron-on vinyl you can check out. If you don’t want to buy black vinyl you can just cut eyes out of black felt and use a hot glue gun to glue them on.


I’ll be giving measurements to make a pillowcase to fit a 16-17 inch square pillow but you can easily adjust the measurements to fit a different size. To see how to figure out how much fabric you need or to make a very basic pillowcase see my quick envelop pillowcase tutorial.
