No, it’s not going to be a Dr. Who Dinner Party. Just preparing my fabric to make it nice and straight.
Here is a close up of the exploding Tardis fabric, for my neighbor, as per her request.
Using a REAL pillowcase as a pattern…
I forgot to buy matching thread. I promised myself that if I could afford to buy fabric, I could afford to buy a matching spool of thread. I own zero yellow thread. So which brown will it be?
My very hands on helper.
French seams on the insides of the pillowcases.
I love French seams. Sew lovely.
All done! I have been sewing so many sporty pants for my boys, I almost forgot how wonderful good pure cotton felt to work with. Sew, press, sew, press. I really, really, enjoyed this project. I think everyone might get licenced cotton pillowcases for Christmas.
