Christmas Pillowcases

Last October, I ended up on Dana's blog, MADE, and her lovely Halloween Pillowcases caught my eye.  I have made pillowcases before, and even thought of making theme ones, but fleece?  I had never thought of that!

Brilliant idea!

I am not so much into Halloween, so Halloween pillowcases were out, but Christmas... yes, I can do Christmas.  To give you an idea of how I take Christmas decorating seriously, here is a look of our tree forest:


I just realized this was taken before we put the star on the big tree.  Anyway, you get the idea.  Since I love decorating for Christmas, I thought I'd make the kiddies some cosy pillowcases they could enjoy for the whole month of December (they were made a while ago, I just forgot to post about them).


They were so easy to make...   No French seam, no zigzag... fold the fabric and sew a seam on each side, then hem (check out Dana's tutorial at the link above for an even better explanation).


They practically made themselves... Especially if you count the fact that my mom actually sewed them while I was working on a quilt!


 
Well, I have to run... more Christmassy stuff to be made.
