I was recently commissioned to make a set of pillowcases using vintage fabrics.
There were not to be just any ordinary pillowcases.
Pillowcases with zippers on one end.
It was a good thing I had helpers.
These pillowcases were a lot of work, measuring, cutting around the stains to have enough pieces to fit back together, sewing together different blends of fabrics, and assembling to satisfy the customer’s request.
I have been doing a lot of pretty easy sewing these days, so I loved the challenge of figuring out how to make these based on the specifications, and learning to work with vintage fabrics for the first time.
