Remember this main print I shared the other day?
|Main print in the Farm Collection|
|Set of fat quarters from the Farm Collection|
I struggled. Why? To a quilter, ALL fabric says "quilt!" But I knew that her mom (my daughter) wanted another pillowcase for Eva. She has several quilts already. I selected two fabrics to go with the main print. All I had was fat quarters so I needed to piece the main part of the pillowcase. One for the front and one for the back.
Happy little farm animals, smiling at me as they know they're going to get off my fabric shelf and go live with a little child!
|See how happy these animals are to be on their way to a pillowcase!|
|Selecting the right color of green|
Folding the green hem to hide the seam. Pinned and ready to topstitch with green thread.
|Back side of the pillowcase|
Hello? We can see you from the other side!
|Zigzagged seems inside|
This was made for a special size pillow: 13" x 18" x 4" deep
|Little Pig and Sassy Rooster are still smiling|
|Zippered pouch with batting and lining|
|Zipper pouch on the inside|
I like the challenge of working with fat quarters. It forces me to be creative. Who says the pillowcase has to made from only one fabric? And I think my granddaughter will enjoy flipping the pillow over to see what's on the other side.
Now I'm off to the Dollar Store to find a few farm themed pre-school items to put inside that bag. She gets this on Thanksgiving!
