Pillowcase, pillowcase, where have you been?

Well, certainly not up to London to visit the Queen! To be honest, it’s been in pieces in my workbox for a little while, as January hasn’t been the best month here at Pintucks HQ (family bereavement and associated sorting out) –  but it finally made it onto the sewing machine !

This was a custom make, to match a quilt I made at the beginning of last year (together with curtains, cot bumper and bunting – thanks Emma!) and it’s the first time I’ve made a pillowcase, but it seems to have turned out well and fits my pillow (yay!) so I reckon it should do the trick.

One of the things I love about making things for other people is that it pushes me out of my comfort zone and I make things I wouldn’t normally do – no doubt Charlotte has added it to the list of things she’d like for her room (poor girl is still waiting for me to finish her bunnies quilt but is making do with the small version for now).

If anyone is interested in a pattern, or measurements to make up a pillowcase, feel free to drop me a line. Now I need to go make cushions, cushions (a few more houses) and more cushions !
