    my first attempt.. even with french seams! I did not use a contrasting color.. Just basic material and cuff fabrics.

    I like making those! I got "excited" a couple of years ago and made TONS of them, in fact I still have some of the Christmas ones.

    Very nice! I like to make pillowcases too, mostly as gifts. I never used to do the french seam but once I did try it, I always do them now. Just gives the pillowcase a finished professional look.
