Last night I made a pillowcase. Just up and decided to make a pillowcase. Useful, quick and appreciated! How nice it is to start and finish a project in one night!!
I followed Ashley's tutorial for my construction approach, changing the dimensions to fit my son's small child-size pillow. The trim is just the right touch of "special" while keeping things simple.
I've had some small fat quarters of Indian Summer by Sarah Watson biding their time all summer. This Menagerie print is by far my favorite. Seems to be getting hard to find, but I found it today at FabricBubb. I had to use three different prints for this project since there wasn't enough to go around, but I quite like that Woodland print with the Menagerie. Teepees and animals - so cool!
The back is another Indian Summer print. Happily all these colors play real well with the Alphabet Soup quilt I made for Liam over two years ago.
Of course, he likes it! Kids are so sweet. Definitely a satisfying and blessedly simple sew. Mmm... I needed that!
Fabrics: Indian Summer by Sarah Watson can still be found at Sew Modern, Fat Quarter Shop, Intrepid Thread and Fabric Bubb, and in Canada at Mad About Patchwork!
