New Pillowcases

Ever since I painted my bedroom, I've been trying to update everything in the room. There's new flooring, new curtains, new wall art and now I'm working on the bedding. I wanted some new pillowcases to accent the new colors of the room, but sticker shock at the store kept me away.

I used to think it was crazy to make pillowcases. With the price of fabric yardage, I thought making pillowcases was a luxury. Then I went to Macy's bedding sale only to discover that nice ones were more than $50 for two. Back to the fabric store I go! Not only was is cheaper to make them, the fabric choices were endless.

What fun it was to shop around for just the right fabric combinations. And I got lucky. I found this nice fabric in the clearance section of the fabric store. I added a complimentary solid for the trim and actually found some matching fabric in my stash for the cuff. I just love when things come together.

I made two pillowcases for my extra bed pillows and still had some leftover fabrics. My husband has this small pillow he received after his heart surgery. Back then he used it to put pressure on his incision post surgery and now he uses it to support his shoulder after his rotator cuff surgery. Although I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the pillow, it doesn't exactly match the decor in the room. So it got a makeover too. The leftover fabrics were just enough to make a pillowcase for the heart pillow too.
