Pillowcases: a Make Nine finish

Back in January, I signed up for the Make Nine Challenge [#makenine]. Pillowcases was one of the projects on my list. After a lot of intricate piecing of 6-inch blocks for The Farmer’s Wife sampler, I am happy the tides turned toward easier sewing—pillowcases.

Pillowcases are always fun to make and especially fun to give—whether you have those "hard to get for" people or not. Pillowcases are personal, customizable, useful, easy to sew, and one size fits all!

The colorful birds shown in various fabric prints is my personal favorite. The pillowcase cuff has rows of dog houses.
Pillowcases for the yarn lover. The birds and dog house pillowcases are for me.
