If you are sewing a pillowcase and doing it in three pieces. body, narrow trim, and band.
Q1: What is the widest narrow trim you would make being folded? 1.5" or 2" (4"unfolded)
One inch narrow trim look so tiny.
It won't look right if the narrow trim is too wide???
Q2: What is the widest band you would make being folded? 5" or 6" (12"unfolded)
What do you think? How wide do you make yours? thank you B.

I cut the narrow trim 2 inches and the band 9 1/2 inches and fold both of them in half. I got these measurements from a pattern that was given out at a quilt shop.
