Toddler pillowcases {a mini, mini tutorial}

I said I was going to follow through on my projects, and I actually completed one!
Girly pillowcases for our girl.

I feel like I was just making these for the boys.
Time goes by too fast.
Sad face.


fabrics are from JoAnn's in November or December??
toddler sized pillows are from Ikea.

There are bunches of pillowcase tutorials out there, but for a quick reference for teeny Ikea sized ones...

Total lack of pics because I whipped these together at 11 last night...

you need:

8in x 30in piece of fabric for the trim
20in x 30in piece of fabric for the main portion (if you have a directional print, pay attention before cutting. Ahem.)

Fold the trim piece in half, the hotdog way.  Wrong sides together.  Iron.

You should have a a strip 4in x 30in

Pin the raw 30 in side of the strip to a 30in side of the main fabric.  Right sides together.  Sew and serge/overlock/zigzag the seam.

Iron and topstitch along the seam.

Fold the entire piece in half, right sides together.

Pin and sew along unfinished edges.  Serge/overlock/zigzag the seam.

Turn right side out and there you go!
