Pillowcases


Very quick sew - maybe half an hour for two pillow cases? Although I wasn't keeping track - maybe 45 minutes. I used the burrito method (google it) to make these super fast.
All edges are enclosed within french seams so no loose threads start fraying. And those dachshunds were seriously fraying.


I jetted over to Fabric Depot on Saturday because 40% off all fabrics was just too much for me to resist. I had wanted to sew some new pillowcases for my niece and thought these aqua and green dachshunds would work for her.

 It was dark already when I finished ironing these so I used my OTT light (more natural light) by my machine to take these crap photos.

They are in her care package and another gift is sewn and checked off my list.



I picked out a fabric to go with my sky diving bunnies to turn them into pillowcases,  so I am ready to not work eleven hours per day right now. Just sayin'.

  2. Love your fabric choices! I just heard about microwave fabric bowls at the quilt store. I might have to try those too!

  3. Nice job on the pillowcases - the doxies are adorable, lol. Congrats on getting a gift crossed off the list - I love putting that check mark on mine, too :)

  4. We don't tend to make these here, I wonder why not! I guess generally the pillow case would be bought with the duvet cover and they'd match? Yours look fun - tempting!!!!!

    1. Ours are sold as packages too --sheets and pillowcases to match. Sometimes duvet plus the linens.
      Easy to sew and personalize.
