Some of you probably remember the post from a while back where my son insisted on calling his sisters, "The Sisters." Well, The Sisters and The Boy all sleep in one bedroom because their mother is a selfish human being. We have a bedroom downstairs but it's my sewing haven. There is a bunk bed in the kids' room and The Boy sleeps on the top and the girls sleep together in the bottom bunk. My husband and I both agree that it would be a shame if the mother of this household flipped out one day and went crazy. Therefore we think it's a good idea for me to have a sewing room. Sewing is my therapy. Without sewing, I get a titch bit loony. Lately I've noticed that when my son goes to bed the girls have gotten his pillow off the top bunk and are cuddled together on it. I figured it was time for the girls to get their own pillows.
So, I pulled out all of the girly-pinky-lacey-frilly fabric (my girls loooove pink and lace) and put it in a big pile. I found this fantastic tutorial online for the pillowcases. Yes, I know it is super easy but this tutorial shows you how to do so the only raw edges are at the side and bottom of the pillowcase. It's kinda cool. I'm also adding it to my favorite links to the right.
This is the inside of the first one. The line of stitches is there only to hold on the rickrack. I love how you get a finished edge on the inside.
Ahhhhhh, I love me a quick, cute project.
