Last month I had got around to finding some fabrics to use for the pillowslips but I wasn't really happy with what I had put aside to use. I felt that it wasn't really nice and cheery fabric. So last Thursday night I looked through some of my stash again and found some fabric I'd forgotten I had :-/ It had been bought as a remnant years ago and had colourful parrots on it. Then without too much effort on my part I just put my hands on the other 2 fabrics needed; as though they came out of nowhere.
I measured and cut the fabrics while dinner cooked last night, then sewed the pillowcase after dinner. I used the 'tube' method and found it to be easy, fun and with a finished product that looked pretty good to me. The actual sewing took less time than the cutting out and the sewing up! amazing. I am going to check with the Sunshine Linus group here in Qld, whether they can use pillowcases locally. Otherwise it will be posted to the US (with a few more perhaps?) to join the ones made last month in FNSI. (I think the total made last month by participants in FNSI was 174)
I finished up the evening with my knitting. This project is just about finished, ready for posting.
