I love this pretty flannel fabric. It's a Michael Miller flannel. . I used one yard of fabric to make my little niece a pretty pillow case. This is the inside. After carefully measuring four inches and pressing with an iron, I then turn under a 1/4 inch along raw edge and pressed with an iron. I stitched the raw edge first, then folded and stitched along the four inch wide hem.
Here is the outside, in which I've stitched some pretty trim over the outside four inch hem.
I love this 1958 sewing machine. It was my mother-in-law's. It was top of the line back in 1958.
It doesn't just sew, it glides. I'm so thankful for this sewing machine. I love the cute pictures from the instruction manual.
I love this fabric by Amy Butler and again, I have not seen it in my area. I bought one yard for a pillow case for my sister-in-law. The edges are finished.
Bat Man flannel from Joanne's Fabrics.
I found these cute flannels at Joanne's fabrics for $2.50 per yard, and many more cute and fun prints, but I can't show them to you because my kids are each getting one in their Christmas stockings. Can't risk that they'd see.
The expensive fabric cost me $8 per pillow case. The less expensive, yet still pretty fabric from Joanne's Fabrics cost me $2.50 per pillow case. "Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them." Acts 9:39
