Yay!! This is the last of the stuff I made in October. I am excited!! Since I can begin to show you the things I have made so far in November. Order… got to have order. Can’t put the cart before the horse. 😀
A couple of you asked if I would do a tutorial on how I am making my pillowcases. I am working on it. Not finished yet but I am thinking I will have it ready to post early next week.
So this post will show you the charity pillowcases plus a few I made for my Etsy Shop.
OK… Let’s get started.
The two in the top photo are my favorites in this batch. Batch 8. Black and white. So crisp looking. If I had a black and white bedroom, I would use them myself.
Stripes. I found a great flat sheet at Salvation Army’s Thrift Shop a couple months ago for just 3.99. I was able to get five pillowcases from that one sheet. Isn’t the John Deere fabric the cutest!!
More stripes. I love these!!
Dots. Polka dot, splashes of dots and large dots.
Even flowers, vines and leaves.
And these I made from the leftover backing fabric from my Hugs and Kisses quilt. I don’t waste ANY fabric. I will make it work even if I have to piece the pieces together.
Well, that does it for the charity pillowcases. 20 in this batch for October. Yay!! I am still on track to meet my goal of 20 a month from May to December.
I also made a few I will be putting in my Etsy Shop.
This set I am so in love with. I love the colors. The freshness of the white bubbles fabric.
BUT mostly I am happy with how the fabric strips lined up almost perfectly at the seam.
This patriotic set was made from pinwheels I made in July.
They were some of my practice blocks just sitting. I used most of them.
And this last pillowcase.. Purple, lavender and teal.
I made the band from some blocks I made some time ago. Blocks I made when I was on my scrap color blocks kick last year. They were just sitting in a plastic bag. I was delighted when I laid them out and they measured exactly what I needed to make the band.
Whew!! That does it for my October finishes. Sorry it took so long. Now I get to tell you and show you my November projects. Thanks for sticking with me. 😀
