Flannelette Pillowcase...

Another pillowcase, but this time for a family member. I was lucky enough to score this soft flannelette on sale some time ago. What I found unusual, was that the fabric was made exclusively for Jo-Ann fabric and craft stores, yet here it was on sale in a quilting shop in Australia.

Originally I thought I'd use it as a quilt backing, but I've cut into it now, so I'll have to find another backing. I am planning a robot quilt. Actually, I've been thinking about it since the beginning of the year... you can't rush these things.

I've purchased another robot flannelette that I might use for the robot quilt backing. It's a lovely pale blue, but not as nice as this one. There's just something about these bright colours that I like.

Once again, I've used the measurements in the pillowcase tutorial by Flower Press. Making a pillowcase is a quick and easy project and one that would be perfect for someone who is new to sewing.

This fun pillowcase will be joining the 100+ projects in the Pillows and Cushions link party here at Threading My Way.

  1. what a cute robot print! I'm glad to know that I"m not the only one who spends more time thinking about a project than making it!

  2. That's an adorable print - and who doesn't like robots??!! Last night I ordered a little set of scrapbooking brads - I thought I would try them out on a zipper bag as an embellishment - one of them is a robot - perfect on an upcycled denim pouch for a little boy!

  3. I love the nice, bright primary colors.

    How odd that Joann's fabric was at the quilt store. I know some people complain about the quality of Joann's fabrics, but I've seldom found the quality of their fabric to be subpar. I'll admit that some of the really expensive quilt store fabrics are exceptional. I would not, however, be doing much sewing if I only bought those fabrics

  4. that is cool fabric! Lucky little fella

  5. love the fabric and can't wait to see what you have planned for the robot quilt!
