Birthday Presents

My husband's twin grandchildren will be turning three next week, so I made these pillowcases to be used as wrapping for their gifts.

I usually use my serger for pillowcases, but it's currently having some issues. It's probably just operator error (incorrect threading), but after spending 2 hours trying to perform "sergery", I gave up and went back to my trusty sewing machine. Not as nice a finish, but acceptable. One of these days I will take the time to learn how to make the pillowcases with French seams.

Really cute cases! Would you like a copy of my pattern that has french seams? It only takes about 20 minutes to do the entire case.

Cute. That first one should guarantee sweet dreams.

Very sweet Anya, the twins will love using the pillowcases! You did a great job, I always just use my sewing machine, never even thought about using my serger....hmmmmm I need to look into that possibility for pillowcases! I don't like the serger threading issues at all!
