A quick tutorial for making a pillowcase.
1.Find material that your child loves. I picked Lightening McQueen for my son. Cut piece 2 pieces of material 22" X33" long.
2.If you do not have a serger (I do, unfortunately do not know how to string it) make a 1/4" stitch with wrong sides together on 2 side. One short side and one long side. Then turn right sides together, on the same sides of the 1/4" stitch.and stitch a 1/2" seam. Makes for a beautiful seam inside. See below.
3. On the unfinished side turn over 1/2" Press.
4, Then turn over 3" Press and stitch down.
Then your pillow is finished. To add a more personalized touch I added my son's monogram
Monogramming a Pillowcase
Print off letters from Microsoft. This was in Raavi text, the J & W were in 175 Font and the F was in 300 font. Copy onto interfacing.
Iron interfacing to material. I chose felt for this project. Cut out letters. Center letters on material. Stitch around all letters.
Finished Lightening McQueen Pillowcase for my son for Valentine's Day. I really love the monogram!! Gives it an extra special touch!
He LOVES it! I didn't realize I put him in Lightening McQueen PJs the night before. So he matches! Here he is opening his gift Valentine's Day!
I have to add that my husband's homemade gift from me and my daughter was a strawberry cake. Decorated by my daughter!!
