Pillowcases for Charity and tutorial
My church's service project for this month is to make kids pillowcase for a local children's hospital. So over the weekend I made 8 pillowcases and boy was it fun. I think they only wanted people to do 1 or 2 but I got carried away with all the new fabric I have gotten in recently.
Since I was making so many, I decide to also make a quick tutorial...So here it is...
Materials for standard pillowcase:
* 2 coordinating fabric pieces 1 for body of pillow and 1 for trim
* body fabric 26 inches by width of fabric
* trim fabric 10 inches by width of fabric
* Sewing machine
I didn't cut off my selvage, but you can. Since we are using 1/2 in seems it covers it up well.
Turn right side out, Iron all around and.....
Now that you have this super easy and fast tutorial go out and make some pillowcases for your local charity!
