First you select fabric. Here I have it all laid out trying to visualize how the two prints will work together. Fabric is Heidi Grace from JoAnn's.
Next you cut. Measure twice, cut once. Or do it my way and measure four times, still cut wrong and have to cut three times. Ahem. Moving on.
Then you sew straight lines. Doesn't that sound easy? Ha. My lines are about as straight as Ricky Martin.
Then you make a ruffle. I must have been doing something wrong because that blasted ruffle almost killed me. What the tutorial didn't say was that to get it to really work you have to yell at the ruffle, stomp out of the room, and come back the next day to work on it.
It turned out alright though and I will try ruffles again someday. When I have enough meds on hand.
In the end, I wound up with this:
An actual pillowcase. It FITS the pillow. Therefore, we consider it a huge success.
SNOOPY DANCE time!
Huge thanks for the tutorial series, Meg!
