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?

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.
