Basic Pillow Case
My baby Boo's 2nd birthday is coming up quick, only 64 more days! Right now that Little Boo is into construction trucks, especially excavators and backhoes. I thought he would like some new bedding for his big boy bed, which he just moved into a few weeks ago! Yay Little Boo!! Starting with an applique pillow case.
Messure an existing pillow case while it's laying flat. Double the height and add 1/2 an inch. Add about 4 inches to the width.
Laying the fabric right side down, fold over the side that will be the opening 4 inches. Add a 1/2 hem and sew it down.
If you are going to applique something to the front or add any other embellishments now's the time!
Fold in half right sides together and sew along the edge, but don't sew the opening closed!!
Turn right side out, fill with pillow, apply to bed and admire your handy work.
I can't wait to give this to my Boo in 64 days! I know he's going to love it. =D
