Children enjoy having their own special pillowcases that reflect their own individual interests. Sometimes it can even make them more willing to take a nap!
|Sam is happy with his Thomas pillowcase|
|Made for granddaughters; pair on right is made with vintage fabrics.|
|Two more with a train theme.|
|A set with a winter theme.|
|Snowman pillowcase for a child|
|This set was made to coordinate with a special quilt.|
One thing I have noticed is that people seem to love getting their own special pillowcases made just for them. I know that personally I very seldom buy new pillowcases for myself. I suppose plenty of other people are the same way.
To me, the most difficult part of this project is the cutting of the fabric. I have simplified matters somewhat for myself by making paper patterns the size of the two pattern pieces (the body of the pillowcase and the trim piece) and re-using them each time. But once the fabric pieces are cut, this is a speedy project indeed.
Have fun with this idea! Start soon, and you could have a dozen of these completed by the end of July!
