    I just finished four more I had almost done. I like to cut the fabric at one time, then pin, sew the first side, and turn inside out for the 2nd round, then finish for the 3rd round. It's manageable with my life that way.

    I have to say I add lots of steps from those directions... mostly ironing at every step. I held a standard pillowcase up to one and it's exactly the same size. Yea.

    I love, love, love the batik border on the moose/fish fabric. Kennedy and I had a hard time matching colors on the running horse one, but I finally found something.

    I've decided to go $15. I can always come down; they'll always make great gifts. :wink:

    Those are beautiful, I like your choice of colors, too. Do you use the "burrito" method of making your pillowcases?

    Great job, Karla! Love the fabrics! Pillowcases sew up so easy! I think once I am done with this last quilt, I might make a few more pillowcases.
    I'm going for $12 for mine, that will be the rock bottom price, won't come down on it. I am so hoping to sell EVERYTHING!

    There was a lady selling them for $20 at the craft fair I did two weekends ago and I thought that was too high. I don't think she sold any either. I think $15 is perfect!
