So...at lunch one day, my friend Sandi asked me if I would make a Valentine pillowcase for her granddaughter. I said sure. Go to Strawberry Patches because they have the cutest fabric with valentines on it called Pam Kitty Love. They will help you with the amount and help you coordinate the 3 fabrics you need.
Later that afternoon, she called me from Strawberry Patches and the first thing she said was "I'm going to pay you." I'm butting in and saying "Oh no...I'll just make you a pillowcase...they are easy peasy."
"No, Beverly, I'm going to pay you. I just bought 10 yards of fabric from the fabric line Pam Kitty Love and I want you to make it all into pillowcases.
I should have taken a picture of the big stack of fabric she brought me. Knowing my love for Pam Kitty fabric, you must have known how my heart pitter-pattered just looking at it.
I was anxious to get started.
So...here are the pillowcases for her granddaughters.
You can find a tutorial for making these easy peasy pillowcases here.
I just had to put one on a pillow to see how it looked.
Then Sandi sent me a link to this on Pinterest and asked me to use all the rest of the fabrics to mix and match for pillows like this. I don't crochet any more, so she gave me a bunch of pom-pom trim and ric-rac.
I got 5 more pillow cases out of her yardage.
I wanted to put them on a chair like the photo on Pinterest, but I don't have a chair in my
RV small cottage.
So here one is on my sewing table.
I noticed in all the pictures on Pinterest I saw of pillows stacked on chairs, the pillow was covered with a coordinating fabric. So by adding a 5" facing inside the case, I could slip it over the pillow for the right effect.
(If you click on my Pinterest button on my sidebar, and go to my Pillow Love board, you will see all the pins for pillows stacked on chairs.
Met Sandi last night and delivered her pillowcases. She loved them.
I had a hard time letting go of them...there's something about that fabric and anything that's made from it that makes my heart pitter patter.
God is Good!!
