I think it will be fun, too.  But for me, it really depends on the deadline.  I already feel like I'm buried to my eyebrows in projects, but should have most of them caught up by the end of June.

Awww, heck with it.  Count me in!  It sounds like fun, and I've only made 2 pillowcases, ever.  I'd love to make some more because they were so much fun!

Hello Everyone!

I am thinking of doing a swap.  My idea is a Pillow Case Swap. Hopefully 15-20 people would sign up.  I would draw the names for everyone.  I would let you know and give you that persons information.  You will make 1 set (2) of pillow case for the person you have the name of.  I am thinking I would like to have it be a Christmas themed pillow case and we will have this be due by the end of July.  We will have Christmas in July.

What does everyone think???????  I am excited. Let me know.

Karen what a lovely idea. I make pillow cases all the time just finished two sets for Mother at the home. she loves the softness of the quilt shop fabrics on her face. I am in for sure. They are so simple to make only takes about an hr to make a set. Perhaps we can make two sets per person, not expensive and will ship for the same price.. LOL maybe a Christmas set and one for fall?? your swap, but I'm in 4 sure.

ok, let me make sure I have this straight.  we're making 2 sets of pillowcases for one other person.  I've never made a pillowcase, is there a pattern?

Hi Debbie,

No, we are only making one set (which is two pillow cases).  I am sorry if I confused you.  Yes there is an example and little videos of this on the internet.  Here is one to look at.  They are so easy to do and they are so much fun to do.

Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j06WzmN7KI

When she is showing you how to lay everything out, she says quilt, but she is talking about the pillow case materials.  We also call it a hot dog.  LOL  These pillow cases make wonderful gifts for weddings, teachers, secret pals, children, for anyone or for any occasion.

Let me know if this helps.  I make these pillow cases for the hospital I work for.  I do them for the children that are in the hospital.  It sure brings a smile to their faces.

I would love for you to.  Let me share the video with you.  There are several on the internet, but they are so much fun and I thought Christmas fabric would be an awesome way to get ahead for Christmas a little.  :)

I am definitely in for two sets, if everyone wants to do that.  Yes, they are inexpensive to make and totally lots of fun.  I love colorful pillow cases.  When I travel I always get lots of comments on my beautiful pillow cases, of course when I take my pillow with me.

Sounds great Barbara!  I am not sure how to do all of this so please direct me and I will go for it.  I do want everyone to know that this is the video to watch to do the French Seams.

Everyone will need to send me a PM to give me their addresses and say Yes for Pillow Cases.  Befriend me please.  This is going to be great.  Can you hear excitement in my post????????  :)

I also want to know if you want to do one set or two sets of pillow cases.
