Personalized Pillowcase

My oldest daughter is leaving for girls camp this week and needed 5 little gifts for her Secret Sister.  We thought it would be fun to give her a pillow case with her name on it.  In my search for the right measurements for a standard sized pillow case, I found this video tutorial.  There are printable directions which were helpful too.  The case was pretty easy to sew.  I decided to use french seams because I didn't feel like getting my serger out for such a small project. 
For her name I made my own pattern to trace using Microsoft Pulisher.  First use word art to type the name and select the font (I chose Ravie because it is a nice wide font.), then select white for the fill to get a traceable outline and print it.  When tracing the letters on the fusible web remember to trace them on backwards so they will appear the right direction when you are all done.  I  attached the letters with fusible web and then stitched around them for durability.

This was a fun project.  Now my kids want me to make them one too.  We'll see! 

Pin It!
