Five Pillowcases Done

I spent my day off productively making five pillowcases for Operation Pillowcase :

I know the Elvis fabric does not have a dark background, nor does the John Deere fabric - but I couldn't resist. I had so much fun making these, I'm going to make more. These novelty fabrics are fun to use and perfect for pillowcases.
The best part is when you're done sewing - you are done - no handwork! It all comes together so easily. Most of these fabrics were dug out of my stash, but Hobby Lobby had a sale (30% off) their cottons so I snatched up a yard of Elvis and John Deere.
I was also happy to run across the Laurel Burch fabric under a lot of other stuff in my sewing cubicle. It's so wild and colorful.
Love the Elvis fabric. I'm tempted to go back and buy the rest of it and make a blouse. :-)


  1. I guess Elvis will never go out of style!

  2. Fabulous fabrics! Those should be popular, dark or not.
