I’ve made one of these pillowcases with a border of fabric before, but believe me I did it the HARD way.
I love linen with borders, my favourite doona cover has one.
This little pillow I made for my eldest when she was born (yep that’s the one I did the hard way).
I admit I didn’t really pre-think that little elephant pillow, I had no pattern, it was one of those projects that you make decisions about as you go, which isn’t always the best way to work. I decided, for something that should be relatively simple, it was too hard and I wasn’t in a hurry to attempt it again.
Go visit, the tutorial is thouroughly photographed. I had one of those ‘Uh Duh’ moments. Seeing it all photographed like that, really it IS very simple. Sometimes it just takes someone to show you.
If my sewing machine wasn’t all packed away I would be trying it out right now! I have a square version floating about in my head. For now it will just have to sit here on my blog hopefully inspiring someone else and one day I’ll might just have time to click back and give it a go.
