I was sooooo excited to complete a sewing project from start to finish all on my own.
I got my inspiration from The Cottage Home, I saw one of their pillowcase projects on Pinterest. I looked over the directions and knew I could pull this off on my own.
One of the first things I learned at my lessons was how to do a french seam. The french seam gives the inside of a garment/project a clean finished look, no unfinished/raw edges exposed.
I picked colors that would match my current bedspread, even though I wanted to make a pillowcase with the most adorable fabric that had popsicles on it. While at the fabric store I also picked up a rotary cutter, mat and ruler. This made the cutting easier.
The project was called the 15 minute pillowcase, and it took me about an hour. I really took my time and followed the directions, which is essential for a someone new to sewing.
I really was pleased with the final results, just ask my family, I walked around the house with the pillow showing them for two days.
