I have set a goal to make a pillowcase a week for charity, and since I decided to do that I am on track!  I showed you the stack of pillowcases that my fellow retreaters and I made for St. Louis Children's Hospital when I blogged about retreat in this post.   Today I was in a sewing mood so I made these --

You can see that I have a fun stash of novelty prints and brights, can't you? 

This evening I decided that I needed to clean up the mess I had made in the sewing room, but I got distracted and made these --

I use what is called "the sausage method" to make them which my friend Rilla taught me.  It's a very easy way to make pillowcases in a short amount of time, but it doesn't diminish their cuteness in any way!
