Pillowcase for my nephew and the Million Pillowcase Challenge...
I found a couple of You Tube videos about the Million Pillowcase challenge so I decided to practice how to make it by making a pillowcase for my nephew that I will see in Oregon in a couple of weeks. I found this cute monster print at JoAnn's a few weeks ago and got some thinking I might make him something with it, so the pillowcase fit the bill. Hope it isn't going to be too scary for him (I think he is 6 now).
It starts out as a tube with all the layers sewn "burrito" style:
then turned inside out, sewn on right sides then turned again to the wrong sides making a French seam:
Here are a couple of places on You Tube that describe how to make it the best (I think): Missouri Star Quilt Company and Crafty Gemini There are others but I like those two the best. Information on the actual challenge is HERE.
