The one thing about people knowing you can sew is that sometimes they spring projects on you. My neighbor is a school nurse and really wanted a coordinated look to her room this year, so she asked me if I could whip up a couple of pillow cases and a coverdrape for storage. Their family has been so helpful in the past, I happily obliged. What shocked me the most is how fast everything came together – I’m fairly certain it was under an hour. This is a good reminder that making pillowcases would be a fun, quick gift (I’m thinking slumber party, party favor or make a pair of matching sleep pants for a birthday present) – no pattern is even needed!
