So, why would I make a pillowcase on my own if my sewing skills are so abysmal?
Well this is what happens when you have an older chair in a room with a four year old. The cover starts to rip. Then is helped along with little hands. Then those little hands discover how fun picking apart foam is.....
Luckily I had a random flat sheet from Ikea sitting around. Think at some point I was going to make curtains with these. You know, five years ago....
First I wrapped up the pillow case and cut off the excess fabric. It was kinda like wrapping a present, yay! Something I'm good at!
Then I pinned the edges. Again, you can see I don't sew since I don't own sewing pins. Sooooo safety pins it was!
Then the other side...(notice how I made the pretty hem on the top. So when I turned it inside out it would make the inside pretty? Yeah....lack of planning....)
Then I sewed it! Turned it inside out, and fought with the foam to get the stupid thing back into the pillowcase. But! I won! woohoo!
The lovely inside hem that should have been on the inside but like I said...lack of planning.....
Is it beautiful? nope. Even? nope. Does it kinda actually resemble a pillowcase? YES! Will it prevent little child from picking apart foam? Maybe....lol
All in all not a total complete fail! I actually got to use my sewing machine! (yes, I have a really nice sewing machine for no good reason. Maybe I thought buying it would somehow create sewing ability....if you look above...yeah not so much lol)
