Several of us that work on the fun quilt and craft books published here at C&T really are quilters and crafters ourselves. We have an in-house sewing group called The Buzz, and each month one member chooses a quilt pattern to work on. Then everyone makes a few blocks for that member’s quilt. Sometimes we switch it up and work on donation projects. When our Production Coordinator Freesia’s turn came around, she suggested that we make pillowcases for Ryan’s Case for Smiles.
Ryan’s Case for Smiles is a great organization that is dedicated to helping hospitalized kids feel better in order to heal better. And they do it with bright and cheery pillowcases. Check out their website for more information and donation locations.
We had lots of fun creating eighteen colorful pillowcases, which we will be dropping off at Wooden Gate Quilts in Danville.
If you’d like to make a pillowcase, here’s a link to printable instructions:
Or, here is a photo tutorial:
If you'd like to share the joy of creating fun pillowcases and bringing smiles to hospitalized children with a kid in your life, read to them from A Case for Adventures! It's a fantastic picture book about a young boy named George and the magical adventures his pillowcases take him on–plus, it includes pillowcase-making instructions.
