Coloring pillowcases for our Grands

Postby KarenVA » October 3rd, 2016, 11:38 am

I used the Magic Pillowcase instructions from Shabby Fabrics-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7yrDQ7G9so --to make these. What a nifty way to make pillowcases with NO raw edges!! I love it!! Anyway, I hope our Grands like this--and the Tulip Fabric Markers don't make a mess for their mom!

What a fun gift...or in this age of technology...a great diversion after a special meal.

Super cute! They will adore them!

That is a great way to make pillowcases, and the way I usually make them. Thanks for sharing!

What a fun idea.
Do the paints or pens wash out or do you iron them to make them permanent?

Important that you slide cardboard into the cases to prevent the pens from bleeding through to the back. Genine the pens are permanent for fabric. No special instructions or need to set.

Thanks for the cardboard tip!! Some fabric pens need to be heat set with an iron, but these by Tulip just need to air dry for 24 hrs. I opted for these because I didn't want to give our DDIL an extra chore!! LOL

These are super cute. This is much easier to make than the way I've done in the past. I'll definitely try this way next time.

Karen, where did you get this wonderful fabric? Is there a name for it. I am seriously thinking of making this the grand's birthday presents, or at least part of the B day gifts. Thanks for you response.

WOW, what a cool gift idea for the grands. We're down to only 2 who would be young enough for these. I don't think the 18 or 17 yr old would go for these :rotflo: Although you never know with these girls!

Thanks, Karen and thanks so much for the test kitchen info. I am going to see if the library will buy it. They always buy requests from the staff. Thanks,again.

Karen, they will love these! Is the method similar to the "burrito method" of making pillowcases where you sort of roll everything to stitch that final seam?
