    Default Pillowcases!

    Today I practiced making pillowcases using the burrito method. I made 6 and those will go to my mom. I told her what I was doing and she insisted that I make her some because she didn't have enough. Then I spent the day ironing, squaring fabric, and cutting out 17 pillowcase sets for Cyber Elves. Now I get to make more pillowcases!

    I really hate it when the voices in my head argue among themselves as though I wasn't even in the room.

    I tried to be normal once......worst two minutes of my life.

    Holy Moly Melissa, I'd say you're on a roll.

    You're Mom is going to love her new pillowcases. They look lovely. Don't you just love the Burrito Method?!?

    You'll get faster and faster as you go. I play some great music in the background and get into a groove. lol

    Wow!! You are way ahead of me! I need to get a move on. I think I can do them in my sleep now - just love making them! Cyber Elves is such a great cause and I always end up making a few for the kids in the family.

    Do you think it's better to wash the material before hand, then sew them? I was going to make some for my kids for Christmas.

    I love doing them! And your idea to cut a bunch first is a great way to assembly line make them unencumbered by the thought processes! I get on a roll and think creative thoughts and just churn them out, not having to really do any hard thinking about what I am doing with my hands! It's sort of the zen of sewing to me!

    What is the finished size of the pillowcase? What size pillow form would they best fit?
    I am inspired to make a couple of these before Christmas.

    What is the "Burrito" method?
