Pillowcase fun

My Tuesday night ladies group (we really need to find a good name for them) came over recently and we made some pillowcases.  They are really quick and easy to whip up and make great gifts!  You can make some to match a quilt, or use them like a gift bag and wrap a present in it, and customize it to suit each individual person!  You can also make them to store your quilts in, and find them easily if you made them with the same fabrics.  And it's a great way to use up fabric in your stash!

These two are mine, they are shorter than a standard size, as I didn't quite have enough of the main fabrics, but they will get used anyways!  There's kitties on one, and popscicles on the other.

Mona made two pillowcases to match a flannel quilt she made for a Korean young man who is staying at her house.  A great Canadian souvenir for him!

Diane made this cute pillowcase for her nephew.

Marie modified the size of the pillowcase to fit some cushions for her couch.  Very classy!

It was a fun project!
