Isn’t this CUTE??? While looking through Pinterest I found a tutorial for a Minky Pillowcase and just knew I needed to make one for Brooklyn. The tutorial is so well written and easy to follow.
I found the fabric at a local quilt shop and it was kind of funny because when the gal cut the fabric and then looked on the bolt to get the price she said “WOW!” I felt the need to explain that I was making a pillowcase for my granddaughter and knew that in addition to having the fun of making it I would also have the fun of giving it to her.
This was some seriously cute fabric! And there is nothing in the world as soft as minky. I decided to make this pillowcase travel pillow size because that just seemed like the right size for a four year old.
It took no time at all to sew this and I used the serger since I didn’t want all those little minky snippets to get all over the place when Brooklyn took it home. Really I think the only reason it took as long as it did to sew it was that I kept stopping to stroke the soft fabric. :)
I gave it to her this weekend and she loved laying on the floor and playing with the toys. She kept telling me how soft it was!
Since she likes this I might even see what other minky fabrics they have and make a second one for her. Grandmas get to do stuff like that you know.
