Christmas Fabric Bundle Giveaway and Super Easy Pillowcase Tutorial


Today's post it about a Christmas fabric bundle giveaway and sewing tutorial! I will share the details about the giveaway at the end of the post. :)

I was given a chance to work with Modes4u again. They have a variety of cute Japanese character items such as stationary, bento boxes and fabrics. Look at this fun White Christmas Wonderland fabric by Andover.

November and December is the busiest time of the year for everyone, but you might be thinking about sewing something as a gift for your loved ones. I wanted to share something useful and quick to sew today! :)

{You will need}

44" wide fabric --- 42"
Matching thread
Pom-pom trim --- 42"

{How to}

1. Trim your fabric, so it will be 44" wide x 41"long. Fold the fabric horizontally right sides together, then cut it to 36"wide. As shown in the picture, sew two sides and take care of the raw edges with zig-zag stitch or serger to prevent fraying.

2. Fold 1/2" on the edge of the pillowcase opening, press with iron and fold 3", then press with iron.

4. Turn the pillowcase inside out so the right side of the fabric is outside. Pin pom-pom trim on top of the sewed line and sew. I used my zipper foot.


That. is. it! Now you can enjoy the simple and pretty pillowcase. Wouldn't it be fun to make new pillowcases for your family and friends?

Oh, wait! That is not all...
You can use the pillowcase as a gift sack with a ribbon as well.

Now, it is time for the giveaway! Who would love to win this pretty Christmas fabric bundle?


a Rafflecopter giveaway

I will post the winner on the 11th. Good luck everyone!
