So comfy!

I told you yesterday that I would show you my MOST favorite handmade gift today, so I am!

I loved these pillowcases so much that I'm going to make my self several pair. As a matter of fact, I'm really wishing I had one right now to nap on since I'm hanging out in a quiet hospital room while my dad is recovering from hip surgery (the reason I made the comfy pants).

I stumbled upon this tutorial at The Cottage Home and they are super simple. The Cottage Home is full of delightful tutorials, patterns and recipes. I find myself going there quite often!

I used a variety of designer fabric I had started to accumulate. I now know how people feel when parting with lovely fabric. They were so beautiful and soft that I had a hard time giving them up! I used some Michael Miller, Amy Butler, Oliver + S, Art Gallery and Riley Blake. All so lovely!

I think these are going to be my new go to gift for weddings, housewarmings, etc. They really are easy and are beautifully finished with not a seam showing. You spend most of the time cutting your fabric (straight is the key).

I already have plans to make some for myself and my girls because who doesn't love a good, comfy pillowcase?
