This time I share my pillowcase making as I am so particular about my pillowcases that very few commercially produced ones come up to standard.
A good pillowcase should;
- be % cotton or linen.
- be ironed!!!
- Feel crunchy when my head hits it
- Stay cool in the summer so if I wake up at night I can turn it over and it will be cold against my skin
- Have a decent tuck in tab so the pillow does not come out of the case!!!.....
Oh I could go on.
For my birthday last year my sister gave me these incredibly old Osman sheets still all in their original wrapper. So last night I made some pillowcases from them. I made four normal pillowcases and then one triangle case. (First time ever) Wow these sheets were so so starched it was hilarious, just another pointer to the date of them.
Eli likes to have some company as he winds down for the night so he popped into our bed to read while I put pedal to the metal on the sewing machine.

Now I am happy to make the bed!
