My sister works at a hospital and decided that she wanted to make some pillowcases to donate to patients. She sent me a link of a charity that makes pillowcases for patients asking if I could teach her to sew. We set a date and I precut the fabric to speed up the process. Life got busy and I finished the pillowcases myself.
I have plenty of fabric and am a bit of a fabric bargain shopper. All of the fabric is quilt store quality fabric. Each pillowcase ended up costing a little over $6.
I wonder why it takes me so long to finish projects. I think part of it is that I chain piece and assembly line projects as much as possible. Sure, it is a quick easy project when you do one! Plus I am a pinner, so that increases the assembly time. Project monogamy is not really my thing either. I get easily distracted with other projects – the picture gives my secret away.
I tried to use a variety of fabrics that might be used by a variety of ages.
How cute are these monkeys?!?!
I finished the pillowcases and delivered them to my sister! Hopefully they will brighten someone’s day. I may try to get a few pillowcase kits cut for February retreat and ask the ladies to volunteer some sewing time.
