Handmade Gift Ideas #5 - Pillowcases


Today's handmade gift idea is a classic gift at Christmas - Soft, cozy pillowcases.

   
This is a picture from a few years ago when I made all of my grandchildren Snuggles pillowcases. They love how soft and cozy they are and use them year round. 

The next year I made all the adults Snuggles pillowcases.

A few days ago I made 8 more pillowcases in just a few hours.



Yes, BYU, for some big fans this year. 
They are a little young to follow my blog, so I hope the secret isn't spoiled.

If you are not familiar with Snuggles, it is a Moda 60" wide soft fuzzy fabric.

I have a few pillowcase kits in the shop if you are interested.  
The kits are a simple red Snuggles base, which is the softest fabric ever, and a flannel band.  


There are several fabric options to choose from.

My Snuggle Up Pillowcases pattern is great if you want to make a pillowcase that is a little more detailed.  I used the Snuggles for the plain and flannel for the print.
 
 

 My Patchwork Pillowcases pattern would be great to piece using some
 fun Christmas prints.


  Both pillowcase patterns, paper and PDF are just $5.00 each from now until Christmas.

You can make the pillowcases simple or fancy, either way, it's a great gift for young and old.

Happy Stitching,
Bonnie
