Friday Night Christmas Sewing
Its finally here! Friday Night Sew In is this Friday, January 21st.
As I posted earlier, I'd like to make Christmas gifts during Friday Night Sew in each month during the year. One idea I have is to make pillow cases to fit the individual likes of my children and grandson.
So, this week, I will make an "Appie" pillow case. In case you aren't from Western North Carolina (I'm not either!), Appie is short for Appalachian State. One of my sons-in-law is an Appie graduate and played football there. I already have Appie fabric and the pillow case instructions printed out. So I'm good to go.
I made my son-in-law a Christmas Stocking for Christmas 2009 from this same fabric and he really loves it. Since he only gets to see that stocking for a few minutes on Christmas Day, I think he would love a pillow case that he can use every day.
Here's what the stocking looks like.
Here is a pillowcase I made for my son last year in camoflauge fabric. I love the way it turned out. There are no raw edges and its very professional looking. Of course I will need to make my son's pillow case from a different fabric this time! Here's the camoflauge pillowcase.
HERE is the link for the pillow case instructions.
