Personalized Pillowcases

Did you guys see me this week over at Crystal's Craft Spot?
If you missed me, here is what we did!

Personalized Pillowcases!

First: Let's start with the pillowcase itself.
I am sure all of you know how to make a pillowcase
and have been doing it since 7th grade Home Ec. -
but just in case you haven't -

You will need a yard of fabric per pillowcase.

I chose white. I love white pillowcases.
Second: Fold and press about a half an inch
then fold and press another 2 inches.
This will make the edge of your pillowcase.
Third: Stitch about a 1/4 an inch from the edge of your press,
then turn it "inside out" and stitch all the way
around your pillowcase. When you are done stitching,
you will turn the fabric right side out and be done with the pillowcase.
.... So easy!
Fourth: Print up the words you would like on your pillowcase.
Then cut them out!

Fifth: Fuse your fabric choice to the "Wonder Under."
Sixth: Pin your letters to the fabric.
Seventh: Cut them out - very nicely!
Eighth: Pull the paper off the back of your cut out letters...



.... and position them onto the pillowcase.
Ninth: Iron on your letters!

Tenth: Stitch around each letter to make sure they
are totally secure for a long time!

Enjoy!



Usually, I am not a big Camo girl...
But these are going to be our "camping" and "traveling" pillowcases
so I catered to my hubby - and he loves them!

I call them "camping" pillowcases because they are the pillowcases
we will use when we are out camping or traveling
so we don't ruin our nice ones that go on our beds!

I don't know about you - but I love to take my own pillow -
but worry about the nice cases.
Now, I can have my pillow and peace of mind too!
Yeah!!

Now I just need to finish mine!

These pillow cases are cute. Years ago I made all the kids pillow cases and actually last night one of the kids asked me to make on again.

Thanks for the idea.
