Thank goodness it is Friday. I am ready for the weekend.
Earlier this week the husband was complaining about not having enough pillow cases so I decided to whip some up.
Pillow cases are hard to photograph.
This was my first time making the pillowcases even though they are extremely easy to make. And super quick! Like 10-15 minutes quick!
I used fabrics from Camelot Cottons Mint to be and a few mystery prints from Joann’s. They both had been in my small stash for a while. The Joann’s fabric was actually in my larger scrap pile.
The main fabrics measured 18 x 22 inches and the trim fabrics measured 6 x 22. The main fabrics are also fat quarters. So if you have those they are almost perfect size for the pillow case.
The first thing I did was sew my hem line on my trim pieces.
I then attached my trim to the main fabrics.
See how fast this is going!
With right sides together I sewed up the three sides of the pillowcase. Make sure the trim side is left open for the pillow!
And bam! Done! Super fast!
We used the pillowcases last night and they worked out great!
Turns out the husband likes to squish up his pillow. Making his all wrinkly. hehe.
I think they are super cute and some day soon Ill make a dozen more.
I’d love to start making pillowcases to match the quilts. eeeee. 🙂
