How to Fold a Pillowcase Into an Envelope - Storage Hack
Fold pillowcases neatly and compactly to keep your linen closet organized and save space. In this step-by-step tutorial, I will guide you through the process, ensuring your pillowcase is neatly folded into a compact shape that's easy to store.
You won't need any special tools or equipment; all you need is your pillowcase and a flat surface. Let's get started!
How to fold a pillowcase
Step 1: Lay the Pillowcase Open
Lay your pillowcase flat on a clean, flat surface with the opening facing down. This is the starting position for the folding process.
Step 2: Fold the Bottom Corners into a Triangle
Take one of the bottom corners of the pillowcase and fold it upwards towards the opposite top corner, creating a triangle shape. Ensure that the edges align neatly.
Step 3: Fold the Other Bottom Corner
Repeat the same process with the opposite bottom corner, so your pillowcase is now in the shape of a triangle.
Step 4: Create an Envelope Shape
Take the bottom corner of the triangle, fold it up towards the top, and do the same with the other corner. Your pillowcase will now look like an envelope, with an open end.
Step 5: Fold in the Sides Lengthwise
Fold in one edge of the envelope shape, about one inch inward lengthwise. Make sure it is neatly aligned. Repeat this step on the opposite side.
Step 6: Fold the Bottom Half Upwards
Now, fold up the bottom half of the envelope shape, approximately halfway up towards the top. This should result in a compact, square shape with the top flap of the envelope remaining out.
Step 7: Tuck the Flap In
To keep everything securely in place, tuck the top flap of the envelope into the folds of the bottom half. This creates a neat and compact package, ready for storage.
