Look at A Spoonful Of Sugar’s beautiful pillows. (Shown above.) Instructions for the pillowcases can also be found on her site.
I didn’t have 3 different fabrics but I did have two and I so wanted to try her pattern so I gave it a whirl. Also I have so much fabric and I want to start using larger pieces to reduce my stash before I buy more.
Honestly it took less than an hour to make 2 pillowcases. I will definitely make them again.
I can’t show you beautiful bedroom pictures with the pillows on the bed, because I don’t have that. I tried to tidy up the one little spot but that is as good as it gets. I hate cleaning these days. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. How’s that? I used to be so fussy and have a picture perfect house, but I gave that up. It takes too much time and as you get older you realize time is limited and therefore I’m selective on how I spend my time. Cleaning gets about 30 minutes once a week. That is it. I clean enough so there aren’t germs hopping all over the place. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think there is a tomb stone out there with “She kept a clean house” etched on it. People will remember you for the feeling you evoked in them, nothing else. She made me feel good. She made me feel loved. What else matters? Not much.
So if you want to make someone feel good and loved, whip up a set of these beautiful pillowcases. I love the little pocket in the back because when you only give yourself 30 minutes a week to clean, there isn’t time to check where is the pillow tag. Guess who usually has it sticking out? This solves that problem for me.
Happy Sunday. See you next time.
