Although I admit to being in my annual post-Christmas "I-don't-wanna-sew-anything" mood, I did manage to put together a birthday present. What's great about this project is that it used up a TON of smaller prints I had laying around. I don't have a bunch of boy prints (why are girl prints so much easier to buy??) so I had to piece several together to make the top border piece.
The pattern is from A Lemon Squeezy Home.....I give you my version of the Sleepover Pillowcase...
I love this pillowcase! It turned out so cute, and the zipper pocket was a great idea. I didn't have a 12" zipper on hand, but my 9" zipper works just fine. I used a super soft green minkee as the body fabric, and instead of a button at the top of the pillowcase, I used velcro.
What a great thing for a kid to take on a sleepover. It'd fit a pillow, jammies, stuffed animal, book, small blanket....there's a TON of room in this pillowcase. And the side handle makes it easy to carry.
And really, how happy are my little multi-colored froggies???
