Pillow Cases Small Sewing Card by Valori Wells (scroll down towards the bottom of the linked page to see this particular pattern)
Materials: Quilting cotton in three patterns - a light fern leaf pattern, a dark brown batik and a dark green pattern called "Camelot". There is such a huge variety of quilting cotton available that I could readily find colours and patterns that matched my paint colours, my headboard and my existing bedding.
Comments: These really took no time at all (maybe an hour each?) and I love them. It's amazing how a small thing like this makes such an impact in the room. It really ties the colours in my room together. In fact, I love them so much that I'm already considering making some for the guest bedroom, and maybe some Christmas themed ones ...
My friend seemed dismayed that I would pay $3 for the Sewing Card pattern, however the front cover image was really bright, colourful and inspirational, and, I have a sincere appreciation for having all the math done for me - exactly how many yards I should buy and to what exact size I should cut the pieces. Well worth the $3 in my mind. I followed the directions exactly as written, and the cases fit my pillows perfectly, every inside raw edge is oversewn to prevent fraying and I had very small scraps of fabric leftover. All good.
