    adding name to pillowcase

    Just joined, and this isn't really a quilting question, but here goes.

    If I wanted to add a name to a pillowcase ( the kind you roll up in a tube, pull out etc, which quarter of the cuff would I put it in so the top of the name is toward the seam, bottom and on the side so the side seam is toward the bottom of the case?

    I a sure this is a very silly question, and I am sorry if this is too simple for this forum, but I have been trying to figure this one out and just can't seem to get it right!!! lol

    Thanks for letting me join, hop to learn lots.

          Re: adding name to pillowcase

          Hi and welcome! I made pillowcases for all of my family for Christmas a couple of years ago. I put the names on so they were facing toward the edge of the pillowcase, not toward the seam. Placement was tricky. I would write the name on paper, fold the cuff and pillowcase like it will be once it is sewn, tape the paper with the name on it on the fabric, then unfold the cuff to see where to place the name. It isn't where you would think it should be!

            Jean did just what I was going to suggest. It would be difficult to explain in words.
            Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
            it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

              Fold cuff into four sections Put name here--center the name in this section, facing the direction shown here.

              Dangit looked right when I was typing it! Sorry, it is messed up!

                        I couldn't figure it out either, so I embroidered mine AFTER I made the pillowcase. LOL
