Pillow Fight for a Cause: Fourth Pillowcase

The other girly pillowcase I made for this:

This one is my favorite. I had a hard time putting it in the envelope.  I am sure someone will love it as much as I do!

My sham is still sitting basted waiting to be quilted. I hope to work on it today. Toddler Bed Day is looming!

Now you all make a pillowcase (click here for easy pattern), donate it, and link up your case and any pillow project you have at http://www.ladybirdln.com/2011/06/pillow-fight-enter-your-pillow.html.

Oh, one more thing. I used the Post-it note technique to speed things up when doing the 1/8th inch seam for the french seams. It was so fast and so much straighter!
Just put a small stack of Post-its on the seam line on the machine with the edge that is glued together towards your fabric. Then your fabric lines right up and the Post-its help guide the fabric and stay straight! Cool!

Have a great day!
