    Christmas Pillowcases

    Here are the three Christmas pillowcases I made for three of my grands Tuesday night and UPS them to Illinois yesterday just in time for Christmas. I will spend Saturday making the other 11 for the grandchildren living here close by. These are standard pillowcases using the "Easy tube pillowcase by MQC" on youtube. Thanks for looking.

    Very cute. I can't wait for my 1 year old grandson to be able to use pillows. He will have way too many pillowcases to choose from. I love making them. Yours are wonderful.

    I noticed you faced your angels toward the sewn end. My husband and I had this discussion, which way a one direction fabric should face. He said it should be toward the open end. So, being a good wife, I have been doing it his way. What does everyone else do?
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I do what your husband suggests. Otherwise, to me it seems like they are standing on their heads.

    I always point the "top" of the pattern toward the open end of the pillowcase. These are gorgeous and I'm sure your DGKs will love them!

    Your pillow cases are delightful! What a wonderful idea using Christmas fabrics. Honestly, it was something that never crossed my mind. LOL at myself. Thanks for sharing. I know what the first project I will be doing after the holidays.
