It is for my son since his pillow is of an unusual size and hence not possible to get one in stores. But I guess it is much more satisfying to have one hand made pillow cover. Select your own fabric, colours of your choice and give is it a desires design. You can go for one with or without the frills.
This is my first envelope pillow cover project and took me a little too long to complete it. But the result was rather satisfying.
