My best friend was visiting this past week and we made a TON of yummy stuff including Super Brownies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and Banana Banana Bread. (A yummy post about the food is coming later on this week.) Before she left I also made her a pillowcase. She went through my fabric and picked a fabric for the body of the pillow that has all kinds of baking and cooking terms since we always bake and cook when we are together.
I even had the coordinating fabric and I used that for the sashing.
In between the two, she picked a bright yellow color that I wasn't quite sure about - but it worked out lovely!
I really do love making pillowcases. They are quick, easy and fun. They also reflect their owner and not just to go with their bedding. Here is one I made for myself a few months ago:
|I kind of like elephants... :P|
Here is one I made for my mom this past year for Christmas:

Making the pillowcase for my BBF kind of made me want to get back into sewing and quilting. Hopefully this will happen soon! :) Thanks for dropping by and have a good week everyone!
