I took a little break from some other projects I've been working on to whip up a few pillowcases.
One of my boys is crazy about soccer and the other loves the Florida Gators, so these fabrics were an instant hit!
There are a few different sets of instructions that I have for these pillowcases and they are all basically the same. Some of my sewing friends know them as "The Amazing Pillowcase Instructions".
The French seam is my favorite part. It's nice not to have those ravelly edges on the inside!
The pillowcases I made before my LQS gave me these wonderful instructions are all gooped up with ravelly fabric at the seam allowances from being washed so many times over the years.
The accent strip by the cuff is a fun feature too. It's actually a flap, so it adds an extra bit of dimension.
Edge stitching isn't mentioned in any of the instructions that I have to make pillowcases, but I usually edge stitch the accent piece, the cuff, and also where the cuff and accent piece meet.
This gives it a finished look and helps keep the folds in place.
Have you made something fun and easy lately?
By the way, it's not too late to leave a comment on my last post if you're interested in the ByAnnie's Soft and Stable giveaway. Comments close at 10:00 pm Wednesday night.
It's an especially good opportunity if you have a new summer bag on your to do list!
Have a great week!
