So lately, I've been making pillowcases. They satisfy my urge to create. They only take about a yard of fabric. They are quick and easy to sew. And, they make great gifts, for everyone young and old.
Unbelievably, my blog post last week on pillowcases was my most popular blog post so far. I got 600 hits and received 8 comments. Thank you! If you didn't read it, you can click on the link above. The post also has a free pillowcase pattern and video tutorial link.
|I bought these beauties at Sewfisticates last weekend on the remnant table |
for $2.49 a yard. They are mottled cotton solids. Not quilt shop quality fabric,
but more than adequate for a pillowcase end or an accent stripe.
|These little pretties came from the red tag section at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics. |
They were 50% off the red tag price, so I paid between $2.49 and $3.00 a yard.
Again, not what I would use to make an heirloom quilt but great for a pillowcase.
|Here are some of my focus fabrics that I'm using. Aren't they fun? |
I bought the bacon fabric at Fabric Place Basement to make pillowcases
for my two nephews, Sam and Josh. Ben, my youngest nephew, doesn't eat
bacon, so he is getting a pillowcase with money fabric.
|Here is my own pillowcase factory this past Thursday. |
I am starting to invade Pat's sewing space.
Have a great day!
Pugs and kisses,
