First is this one, which I call Square Flowers. (I do keep a record of my pillowcases and give them names, so I can distinguish them from each other.)
I did a fancier cuff this time and it's different than the one I did on Cody's pillowcase.
The strips are cut 2 1/2" x 6 1/2". The bright blue on the "flange" piece was used to line the cuff. I cut it smaller....I believe 4 1/2", so that when I sewed them together to the body it pulled a bit of the striped cuff to the inside.
If you scroll down a bit, you will see what I mean.
It was easy to do and by pulling it inside a bit, I didn't have to worry about that blue peeking through to the right side of the case.
I love this cuff fabric. After we selected it, we went on to choose the co-ordinate. The cuff fabric is a Free Sprit fabric and it was designed by Kathy Davis. It is called Sweet Birdie. I love all the wording on it. If you look at the opposite pillowcase (below) you can read it. It is just pure fun....and really, really girly!
The coral fabric was designed by Erin McMorris, it is called La-Dee-Da and it is also from Free Spirit.
Free Spirit fabrics are beautiful. They have a great weave and they feel good in your hands when you work with them.
Okay here is the opposite pillowcase. If I had a little girl, I would be keeping this one!!
