I finally completed a sewing project. Woohoo. This one was completed out of necessity, but it did get my creative juices flowing.
Miller needed a cover for his kindermat. His feet hung off the bottom of the mat, so I thought I would add a built-in pillow case to make it a little bit longer. I took photos so that I could include a tutorial.
2 yards of fabric (I used flannel)
Travel Size pillow
The selvage edge does not fray so you don't have to worry about fraying on the pillowcase.
I don't have a very good picture of the next step, but all you do is sew along the long side starting where you made the mark for the pillowcase. If the cover is a little loose, you can stitch along the folded edge too. Then turn it right side out and sew along the line you made for the pillow.
We are officially ready for kindergarten now.
I am happy to report that when I picked Miller up from his first day of kindergarten, he declared "I love it".
