It began with Little Red… This is Judy’s little comfort pillow and pillowcase she takes on-the-go and it originally came from her Mother-in-law, Bunny.
So, here’s the story… Judy brought Little Red into work to show us the clever pillowcase design the same day I found out I goofed on the Gifty project for this week. I talked to Teri about my goof-up and before long Sue, Teri, Judy and I were quickly making disguised Little Reds! Teri’s idea and Judy’s design turned into Sue’s pattern and then, my project for this week! Hence, the birth of Pillow-to-Go Pillowcases! Wahoo!
Soon (and with Judy’s help), LOTS of people were making pillows. Look at all of us!
And, did we ever have fun! Needless to say, it was a rolling snowball gathering fun! Just look what we did in less than two days! The Pillow-to-go Pillowcases are a free pattern download for you too! Judy timed me while making a sample and from the time I started cutting to finishing the pillowcase was a total of 14 minutes! How many of these little cuties can you make for your gift giving? I’m going to make one for each of my grandkids and one for my car and a few for my sofa and…
The fabrics we chose were from a wide selection of collections. The pattern requires ¾ yard which makes two pillowcases (cut very carefully). The pillow form is a standard travel size measuring 12” x 16”. We found ours at the local bed, bath and kitchen store.
Many sewed their pillowcases Wednesday night and a group of us went out and purchased our little pillow forms Thursday to make a BIG stack of little pillows! Wahoo! This was truly a gift to me! Thank you everyone! It truly does take a village around Connecting Threads!
