A pillowcase

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has projects tucked away in their closet for a few years. Right?
Well, after getting two quilts off to the machine quilter this morning, I asked myself what next. While looking for a suitable bag for my quilt tops, I noticed a kit for two pillowcases that I purchased some time ago. I'd even cut all the pieces to size! There it was, ready to go. And with our first camping trip in a couple of years coming up soon, it was good inspiration.
As usual, I didn't understand the directions until I actually was doing it, but it proved to be so easy! I'd seen friends putting them together before and thought they'd make a lovely gift. I hadn't paid attention though and didn't realize how neat a procedure it is. I'll finish the second one and then I'll be thinking about making some gifts.
Have a great weekend!

Hey Holly....I really like that green in your pillow case. Rain stopped here around lunch time...but it is very muggy...enjoy your weekend.

Like you, directions make no sense till I actually do them. Nice!
