Pillow Case #1 for The Boys - CHECK!

Remember this little post from last month.  Good news, I finally got a chance to sew up the pillowcase the for the boys - YEP that's right...ONE pillowcase complete.  I could've done several by now, but we ran into some disagreements on the pattern.  I originally wanted more of this fabric showing, the boys however didn't want a busy pillowcase.

We compromised and did this:

I used the 'too busy' (according to my son who wanted a ALL blue pillowcase) print on the edge as an accent edge instead of using it for the main area.  For the main area I went with an solid blue fabric. Overall I thought it was a fair compromise...though now I am behind on my sewing and still 3 pillowcase short, but at least I have 1 happy little more :).

I'll write up a quick little tutorial soon.

How funny! My husband is the same way, he prefers plain jane across the board while I like the 'busy' look. I just made my son a pillow with remnant fabric and had one "busy" side and one "plain jane" side. He's too little to have a strong opinion either way...for now! I like your compromise with your boys.

That is a perfect compromise!!! What a fun bed they will have.
