PILLOWCASE MADE IN 15 MINUTES!!


I made three of these pillowcases this morning and they are just so simple to sew.  My four year old grandson just loves dinosaurs so that one will be his and the older boys are getting some racing pillowcases which I am sure they will love also.  I have created a video showing just how to make these if you would like to view it.  Here is the link:

Now the directions are very simple.

The cuff ( black section in picture) is 10" X length of material.  (42" to 45")

The patterned fabric is cut to 26 1/2" X length of material (42" to 45")

These are the only measurements that you need and now you can follow along with the video.!

CORRECTION!!

In the video I say to put both right sides of the fabric down, this is incorrect. the right sides should be facing each other together.  I am so sorry for any confusion and thank you Tammy for catching my error!

New Blanket Finished With Two More To Go!

I have just been sewing like crazy the last couple of days!  I have missed it so much.  I still had blankets to make for three of my grandchildren and Camden has been asking me since November when her blanket would be finished.  I have been a "Bad" Grandma!   I promised her when we were in Florida that I would get it finished as soon as we got home!  Well I worked on it yesterday and got it finished!  Two more to go!!  I am going to try and start another one today and get these finished!  This one is really cute!!
