Trying a new pillow case

I have been woken up every night at around midnight for the past 2 weeks. My little guy isn't happy for some reason, and I'm not sure what it is. I do know that when I put his blanket on his pillow and he lays on it he falls right back to sleep. 

So I had a thought - make a new pillowcase out of the same fabric. We went shopping last night and I found out that his blanket is minky. I'd never used it before, so sewing was interesting. It is a lot like jersey where it has a lot of pull. I also didn't cut it perfectly straight, so the seams aren't beautiful inside... but they are inside so I don't mind. 

Here is the finished product: 

Let's all pray it works! This momma needs some rest!
