Pillow Cases

This week's challenge was pillow cases for 14x14 pillows. If I do this again I'll wait until there is a good sale b/c the pillows were the most expensive part.

I thought I'd make it easy on myself and get a fun see through fabric to put over a white pillow case. The overlay that I got was FULL of glitter. Note to self: always check the glitter factor at the store. The kids loved the idea, though.

After just a little bit of sewing (and not much cutting) I whipped these both up. They are now on the kid's beds and hopefully I can make some new ones soon so we aren't bombarded with glitter forever.

If you look closely there is a green overlay. There's also lots of green glitter. 

I didn't realize until after I was ready to sew it on that I had 2 layers of pink, so I used them both. I'm wondering if 2 layers of green would've been better, too. I do love this challenge b/c I'm learning so many new things.
