Pillow fight .... in style!

Last night, I decided to make something that's been on my "to do" list for quite some time (we're talking quite a few years now).

Last year, during one of our gatherings, my friend Gina even did a tutorial (it's her go to item for a gift), which was tempting but ....

You see, I have this stash of cute kid fabrics that I've been hording accumulating and .... I just couldn't bare to part with ..... that is .... until last night!

Ta dah!

The top fabric is a favourite of mine - Marvel Avengers, which Fibre carries. Yea, it was an impulse buy!

The other two are from my personal kiddy stash!

I used the "hot dog" method. Below are my fabric measurements:

3/4 yard - main print pillow
1/3 yard - pillow edge
2" strip - accent piece (optional)

Let me tell you, they are addictive! I actually made five (5) pillow cases last night!!!!!

Visuals are always good, so I checked out Randa's (Prairie Quilts) YouTube tutorial video.

What a great stash buster these pillow cases are ... and they make a perfect gift!

The ones in the picture are for three special kids! I do hope they'll like them!

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you later!

That is on my to do list too, something simple, just never make the time to do some.
I always need extra cases and this way I can make my own to match what I have.

Added to my To Do List too as my pillows are contoured and I want some cases just that tiny bit wider so the contours do not get squashed out and smoothed. TVM
