Pillowcases

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.

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.

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.

    Fun pillowcases. The quilt store near me donates pillowcases to a women’s shelter, I believe, and I try to contribute a few each year. I have never managed as many as you though. Great job!
