Big J likes skate boarding, in the house. And I think he will pretty excited when he sees a skate boarding related pillowcase. This was a really nice change to my last few projects, this was so easy!
Here is the fabric:
The skate boarder fabric is cute in its own way I guess. But this black and white fabric is really hard on the eyes. As you can see its checkered but has a weird wave to it.
Measured the fabric to the size of the pillow and pinned the two pieces together.
After sewing I pressed the seam flat.
Next I folded the edge over of the black and white fabric to make a finished edge. Then took the seam that holds the two different fabrics together and folded those edges over so the raw edges aren't visible. After sewing the side seams its all done!
And the finished pillowcase. I am saving for a serger so I just zig zag stitched the edges in hopes of the edges not fraying to much when I wash it.
Hmm what else should I make with this fabric combination?
