    I finally finished over 60 cases I was making to donate to Give Kids the World...wonderful charity for terminally ill children.
    Here are the cases. I piled some on top of others if they had identical pockets. I believe they put a little stuffed animal in the pocket for each child. My friend volunteers there and encouraged me to do this project.

    Fabulous idea! Are these for full size pillows? Or for a smaller pillow? PLMK

    These are small cases for a pillow that measures about 9 X 15...sort of like an airline pillow. They don't take much fabric. A yard of flannel makes 4 bodies, and a yard of novelty makes 12 pockets.

    I worked with Give Kids The World when I was employed at the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Missouri. GKTW is a wonderful organization. We couldn't have granted Disney wishes without them. Thanks for assisting them in their very important work.
