I'm sure many of you have made pillowcases - they are a fun, quick gift to give someone special. I haven't made one in a while, but recently a friend had surgery and a bunch of us from the quilt shop all made her pillowcases to let her know we were thinking about her during her recovery.
Now, I have made the standard pillowcase, but we have a newer pattern at the quilt shop that we hand out free with a fabric purchase, and I wanted to try the new method. It was a little harder to wrap my head around the instructions (and harder still when using a directional print like this Monster pillowcase I made for my daughter), but now I really like this method for making a pillowcase. Try it the next time you need a quick present for someone! There is a good tutorial with photos at the Lazy Girl Designs website. So try something new, you might find a method you like better than the one you use now!
