This pillow case post was the most popular post in a long time on both Instagram and Facebook. It’s not the most beautiful photo but the fabrics are beautiful and I think maybe the story behind it really resonated with people. So in case you missed my posts (or you’re not on those social media platforms) I am posting here on my blog as well.
The caption of the post said, “My Mom is my best customer and she ordered some#flourishfabrics from my shop. When I went to deliver them she handed them back and said she would like them made into pillow cases. This is a special service I provide free of charge to customers who gave birth to me. 😂 All of these fabrics designed by #miawhittemore are available in our shop. #windhamfabrics “
I think the caption hit home with a lot of people but also the look of the pretty floral pillowcases in bright colours hanging on the line.
How I made them:
To make these pillow cases I used this tutorial . I used French seams to ensure there is no fraying inside the pillow case. To do this I sewed the end and side seams of the pillow case with the fabric right side out with about an eighth of an inch seam. Then I turned the pillow case wrong side out and pressed the seams. I sewed the seams again using a quarter inch seam. Then turned the pillow case right side out again and pressed the seams again.
For the band I folded one long edge of the band down by a quarter inch and pressed the fold. I sewed the two short ends together with a 5/8 seam and then pressed the seam open. Then I pinned the band to the pillow case right sides together matching the side seams. I sewed that seam with a 1/4 inch seam and pressed towards the band. Then I folded the other long (folded) edge up to just cover that seam and pinned in place. I top stitched that folded edge in place which enclosed all the raw edges. This ensures the pillow case will not fray.
I woke up this morning not knowing what I was going to work on but after a bit of web surfing I found this adorable free Crayon Box Mini quilt pattern by Riley Blake and decided to write a free pattern hack for a Kinder Crayon Quilt Pattern. I created this quilt with the Kinder Fabric.
