Ruffle Pillowcase


I knew that I wanted a fun pillowcase to bring to the hospital when delivering Baby Cream. A quick Google search found this tutorial at Little Birdie Secrets for a pillowcase with contrasting bands. I followed the tutorial except for when it came to the small band. There I cut two strips of fabric to give me double the length so that I could gather the fabric for a ruffle. I sewed the two strips together and then ran a gather stitch close to the edge. When inserting the band, I gathered it up and made it match the length of the other two pieces of fabric. There is something to be said about recovering on your own pillow and a fun pillowcase just adds to the comfort.

I will be linking to the following parties this week.
