Fun Pillowcases

Using some fun fabric, I made a pair of pillowcases for our youngest son J's bedroom.

I used two different patterns of 100% cotton for interest, skateboarders for the border and trick bikers for the main body. I prewashed and dried the fabric but didn't use a pattern. I just measured standard pillowcases and went from there. They fit perfectly and worked up quickly~under an hour. The best part is that he loves them.
It is getting too dark tonight to take photos of the pillows on his bed, so I'll share that later.
I'm sharing this with Fabric Fun Thursday #21 at Cheap Chic Home. I hope you stop by!

I'm also joining in the fun at Just A Girl's Show and Share Day. Grab a drink of choice and enjoy the many many links.

  3. Elizabeth,

    I just read through this post and your last. (Wow!) First off, I love all the whites and ruffles. Slip covers! All of it looks great. You should be proud of yourself. I know a little man that would adore these pillowcases. You've been a busy woman.

    Your Friend,
    Deborah

  7. These are great! I make the travel size cases for my grandkids for daycare. They love being able to change them for every season and holiday.
