I thought I'd show you some pillowcases I made last Christmas. I often use pillowcases instead of wrapping paper, but not this time. Because I often make pillowcases, I have pattern pieces cut to size, originally taken from measurements for the pillowcase tutorial by Flower Press.
I love this fabric. It's Willow Grove by Alexander Henry. When making my Curved Seams dress, I experimented with sewing curved seams using Willow Grove fabric. It wasn't a success, but you can see a picture of the fabric that is truer to the actual colour.
This is the second pillowcase I've made using this awesome fairy tale fabric. The first one is well loved and used. Unfortunately I only have little scraps left.
The last pillowcase is made with space fabric from Spotlight. I bought lots of this fabric, simply because it's such a fun fabric that is suitable for boys. There's definitely a lot more choice when buying fabric for girls.
That's the last of my handmade Christmas presents. Perhaps I need to start sewing for this Christmas much earlier than I did last year, so it's not the mad rush it was last year...
