For my Secret Friend....shhh

It's Secret Friend week at our house. My daughter whipped up this quick pillowcase for her "friend". He was thrilled last night. It's great sewing practice for kids; they get to sew lots of seams. Super easy - you need 2 half yard cuts, cut them into 6" strips, so you'll have 6 strips, sew them together, fold in half, serge or zig-zag your opening, then make a 1 inch fold and sew a nice little finishing stitch on top (did a double stitch) & then sew the two inside seams. Voila -surprise! We have the fabrics shown, if you want to whip one up. Check out the Goodie Bag to the right for the free pattern/instructions. ~Corrie


  1. thank you Quilt Taffy - my niece wants to learn how to sew & this pattern is perfect for young hands - i'll even let her pick out the fabric.

  2. Oh this is cute!! I can see making a few to match some quilts, not FANCY shams just some cute pillowcases. How nice of your daughter to make one for her 'friend' ;)
