My fifth FNSI! This month, Heidi and Bobbi have partnered with Arrow Sewing Cabinets and Conkerr Cancer to host a pillowcase project. Everyone will be creating fun pillowcases to donate to Conkerr Cancer, an organization “Giving sick kids a reason to smile...one pillowcase at a time.” What a wonderful idea.
A few weeks ago while shopping at my LFS, I remembered it was coming up and found these colorful prints.
While cutting the fabric for the pillowcases, I had the little tv on in my sewing room and there happened to be a Frankie Avalon beach party movie on...
I managed to watch/listen for maybe 40 minutes...that was all the corn and cheese I could handle! Those surfer boys were really hot-dogging.
Speaking of hot dogs, as these are the first pillowcases I've ever made, I had to follow instructions and enjoyed using the "Hot Dog Method".
It's really amazing that it works! A link with directions can be found on the Pillowcase Construction Page, as a pdf file at the bottom of that page.
I'll be shipping these out on Monday, hoping they bring some joy to someone.
