    1-February-2014 Project of the Month Photo's.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here I am with a photo of the Gift Bag Pillowcase that I have made for this month's project. This was so much fun to make that I can't stop making them & have so far made three, all together. I believe they will make lovely gifts for any occasion. It is so much fun to get such a good head start on the gift giving season. Enjoy & don't forget to post your photo's when you have finished your project too!! Have fun & go daring with your fabric's!!

    Ok heres my pillowcase..
    I decided i wanted to use flannel since its cold right now.. and well my kiddo just 'wants' everything i make these days anyhow.. I used a soft butterfly flannel with a lil bit of glitter for the body and the same pink flannel for the ruffle ( wasnt pleased with it) and the cuff.. I used regular pink quilting cotton for the drawstring-I used leftover pink binding- worked like a charm.. I do suggest to use the turning tool to turn the 'string'.. and have a nice big safety pin or the thingamabob that will thread the sting thru the cuff of the pillowcase.. AND I surged my edges, cut a few corners..and i like the clean seams of serging.. I like the end result.. and I have one happy lil kiddo too !!

    I wanted a 'smooth' pull and didnt think flannel on flannel would allow the drawstring to pull easily..

    Thanks sula bug.
    this is an easy project, but for the ones that are a bit more complicated, where can we find instructions and fabric requirements???

    Thanks for posting here for all of us to get a jump on whatever we need a cutesy gift.
    A BIG thanks.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Yes, Yes loving this months project. Perfect idea for a present for my grandson... He asked if I would make him an Adventure Time theme Pillow... I think I will be doing a bit of applique on the pillow so will take me a bit longer to make but that's a great challenge for me.
    Have an awesome day!

    I can't post pics but I love the ruffle on the closed end! I always imagined it at the opening. I may make a few of these for each of my ruffle lovin daughters! Great idea Sula!

    Sulabug, I posted my pics in the discussion section. Please remove that post, if possible.
    Everyone's pillowcases are cute. I like the idea of using flannel.

    Here are mine.
    I made mine from 5-pack fat quarter bundle from WM. I used 2 different fabrics for the front and back(forgot to take a pic of the back). I made the ruffle longer. If I did another case, I would make the drawstring longer. I had to join pieces and it came out a bit short.
    Pics look a bit washed out. Camera battery must be low.

    Thanks for the great February project.

I have been so excited with the one I made, that I have ventured out & made two mores pillowcases using different pattern's. They are going to make wonderful gifts!!

    I'm working diligently on mine. Didn't want to post picture until it was all done. Trying to decide what stitch I want to use on the applique so currently its hanging on my design wall until the light bulb in my head goes on. LOL
    Have an awesome day!

    I tried! This is mine as you can see, I started altering, not a big ruffle fan. So that went, then I decided to use my pocket differently. I wanted it this way so I could put my iPhone in it why I napped or a tissue. I have king size pillows so I needed some extra length. I also, decided to do this in a girly color as sometimes I stand a better chance of umm, not loosing it shall we say. I am happy with the results, although not like the others. That is me in a nutshell.

    Very pretty deedum. I think the idea is to make it how ever you feel. Like last months fabric boxes. So many different takes on the same idea. I love it.

    Thanks, I may take to make another one when time permits. It is just how I felt making it at the time, much like my quilts. I am truly a free spirit on these things. I must say I do like to see variations as well. Love the eye candy.

    Hi Mary,

    I posted the two new pillowcases that I made under Pictures, on the Quilting Board. Here is the link to see them. I hope you enjoy what I have done. I am still planning on making a few more for gifts. Enjoy!!


    2 more pillowcases all done.

    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
