Christmas Gift Pillow Case Number Three

Here is my Friday Night Sew In Christmas Gift Pillow Case Number Three. I have to be honest with you that I was waaay too tired last night to sew, so it was done early this morning.

These pillow cases are so much fun to make. I love the way they turn out. Even with my limited sewing expertise, they turn out professional looking.



I made the trim a little wider on this one so the blue color would show up better.



The late March sun was shining in the sewing room so brightly this morning.



These two pictures show the inside seams. By sewing french seams, there are no raw edges or loose threads. When the pillowcases are laundered there will be no fraying of the seams.





Friday Night Sew In is sponsored by Handmade by Heidi.
The pillowcase pattern can be found on the Twiddletails Blog HERE.

You underestimate your sewing skills. I think you do a wonderful job on evrything you sew. It's a shame young people today can't take home economics in school. I learned to do french seams when I was a freshman in high school. Every article of clothing I made for my kids had them. I don't like fraying seams.

You're going to have a bunch of happy people at Christmas time. I just know the pillow casea are going to be a big hit.
