    1-February-2014 Project of the Month, Gift Bag Pillowcase

    Good Morning Everyone,

    It's time to post the Project of the Month Pattern for February. This project is called a "Gift Bag Pillowcase, with a gift card pocket". I had a great time making this project & I hope you will like it as much as I did. I have teenage Granddaughter's & I know they will love this project, as Christmas gifts this year. These make up very quickly & you can make several single ones or sets to give for gifts through out the year. Enjoy!!

    what a fun project!
    when i saw this, it occurred to me that i make a lot of quilts but no pillowcases or shams to go with.
    i'm inspired and hope to make at least one of these pillowcase gift bags to go with each quilt i make this year.
    fingers crossed! LOL

    Oh Patrice, what a great idea & I am so glad that you shared your idea with all of us. I was also thinking that by making a set of pillow cases, it would make a great Wedding gift or Birthday & Christmas gift. The possibilities are endless!!

    What a clever idea, someone was thinking, not only does it serve two purposes, it is so pretty, too!! I am going to try this. I like the idea of new projects each month, love quilts but something smaller is so appealing, especially if I am just happy to have a challenging quilt done!!

    very cute case.I might make a smaller one to put my crocheting in. Maybe add a little interfacing to help give it some body. This was made with some very pretty fabric. Can't wait to see what everyone does with this months bag.

    I remember reading about a group that donated pillowcase bags to give to foster kids. Too often when they are removed from their home they take their things in garbage bags.

    Very nice idea, this weekend I was relocation gift bags filled with yarns to a different closet. These bags could hang on hooks. Thanks for sharing your idea.

    The pillowcases are cute. I like the idea of using flannel.

    Had some fat quarters for mine....got them at WM...those ones with 5 in a bundle, tied with a ribbon.
    Forgot to take a pic of the back which is a different color.
    I made the ruffle longer than suggested.
    If I made another one, I would make a longer drawstring. I had to join some pieces and it isn't quite long enough.

    Thanks for this project of the month.

    What a beautiful Gift Bag Pillowcase that you have made & are sharing with all of the rest of us, here on the Quilting Board. When I made mine, I also made the draw string a little bit longer. Your ruffle really adds to it, too. I wanted to suggest, but forgot, that I would defiantly add more fabric to the length of the piece for the ruffle. I like to have a bit more fullness in my ruffles. Just a suggestion though. Thank you for sharing.

    SewSewGal...........We didn't start the block of the month until February this year & then we did two blocks to make up. I am enclosing the thread for the February BOM blocks. I hope this answers your question & that you will be joining us in making the block of the month blocks this year.

    the Quilting Board comes to the rescue once again, thanks to all of you for your wonderful suggestions, I love the pillow cases bags, it will probably be our first choice, some members of our group are over 80 years old, but still going strong and a simple pattern will appeal to them. Thanks again
