How is it that I have been sewing my whole life and never made a pillowcase?
I follow a great blog called "Kelley Highway" and she is collecting pillowcases for the National Children's Hospital in Quezon City, Manila, Philippines
Kelley has called this the "Pillowcase Project", you can read all about it HERE. When I read the post, I knew I had to get onboard.
Since I have a lot of polka dot fabric...Surprise...I decided thats what I would use to make my pillowcases. I hope the kids like polka dots
Kelley and her husband are originally from Missouri and became Missionaries 15 years ago. They now split their time between Manila and Guam and are serving several island regions in South East Asia and the South West Pacific including Australia. This is why she calls her blog "Kelley Highway" ....She's always on the road.
I look forward to reading Kelley's blog....Instead of "Where's Waldo" I always wonder "Where's Kelley". She takes her readers along on her mission work and freely shares the life lessons she's learned and the work she does. She also blogs about her family, sewing, and crafting...Making it a delightful read.
Although Kelleys life and mine are vastly different, I know, that if we ever meet we will talk until our jaws ache.
When I was looking online for a pillow case tutorial a friend told me to Google "Taco pillowcase"......LOL..... After a little looking I realized that she must have said "Burrito pillow case"....Yes, that's what it was...It's an easy to follow tutorial.
If you are not a seamstress but, feel inclined to contribute to the "Pillowcase Project", I'm sure the kids won't mind if the pillowcases are store bought!
Here's a quote from Kelley "What a boost this would be if your readers would sew together a little kindness for these precious little people. We all have so much, don’t we?"
