Weave in any loose ends, securing any gaps left from seaming where the motifs meet. Your rectangle should now measure 34” (86 cm) long and 11” (28 cm) tall.

FINISHING
Edging
Round 1: With right side facing, join E in any corner; ch 2, *3 hdc in corner, hdc in each st along the edge until you reach
the next Small Triangle, hdc in gap between triangles, hdc in each st along the edge to next corner; repeat from * around; join with a slip st in first hdc.
Fasten off.
Round 2: Join A to center of any 3-hdc corner, ch 2, *3 hdc in center of 3-hdc group, hdc in the third loop (the loop found just below the back loop of the st) of each st around; repeat from * around; join with a slip st in first hdc.
Fasten off.
Round 3: Fold pillow case in half with wrong sides together, lining up triangles.
Join D to either top corner, ch 1, sc across, catching both loops from both sides at once to seam the two sides together to corner, sc the first st of the 3-hdc group.
Fasten off.
Note: If you want to omit the button flap, place pillow form in case, and sc to join around entire pillow with D, seaming the pillow inside.
Repeat Round 3 on the opposite side, seaming up the edge with a row of sc.

Row 1: Ch 2, hdc across to the last st joined by Round 3 at the end of the row, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in each st across, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until the flap measures roughly 3” (8 cm).

Buttonholes
Tack or pin buttons to your case right below the flap, arranging them evenly across the edge; * hdc in each st to next button, ch 4; repeat from * across row.
Fasten off.
