A few more gifts......

I gave flannel pillowcases to all of the family 2 years ago.  I figure they might be showing some wear by now and maybe they would like a  new one.  There is a duplicate of the light blue and of the green check that I haven't pressed yet.  There are 2 more to be sewn and then I'll have more than enough.  I used my tutorial that you can find here.  I am trying to use up that flannel that doesn't seem to have a group it fits into.

Gee wish I was on your Chritmas list. I made a flannel pillowcase for my Grandson to match his quilt. Chris

Great idea and a very quick present too!

I was fascinated by this - the vast majority of UK pillowcases (Housewife and Oxford) are all made this way (to my knowledge) - how do yours differ over the pond? I also make cushion covers this way - ie pillow both ends but also enclose 2 x turned fabric strips (approx 9" x 1.5") in each end seam which can then be tied together in a bow.

Great pillowcases. I have some flannel and am going to make some today using your tutorial, always have made it them with the open end. Thanks for you help last week.

They look wonderful. We have flannel sheets on our bed and they are so nice in this cooler weather. (They're nothing like as pretty as yours, though.)

Oh yes....everyone around here thinks they need a new pillowcase for Christmas, halloween, birthdays, valentives...etc. etc. I have spoiled them and every few years I get them a new pillow to put them on and that is always a big hit too! Then you get them cut out you can sew up quite a few in a day!!

The top fabric I used as a backing for a log cabin quilt, years ago (not flannel, regular cotton). I called it Lodge Cabin.

Happy holidays to you, I enjoy your blog very much.
