4 Quilter's Cotton Pillow Cases

4 Quilter's Cotton Pillow Cases
 
For me, choosing the fabrics to put together, thinking of the age of the child who might enjoy this and then taking the extra time to sew French seams is a healing thing.
 
In theory, 3/4 yard fabric for the body + 1/4 yard for the cuff should mean that each pillow will need a yard + some trim fabric.  In actuality, after washing and pressing the fabric, it needs to have 'scrap cut off the end to make it even.  I have found that IF I have 2 yards of coordinating fabric, I can make two cases with scraps left over.  Sometimes the leftover can be used as trim.  However, I like my trim to be light and bright, so I've got some yardage for that purpose.
