I have been quite busy this week making pillowcases. Some are for Christmas presents but not as a normal present. No, I am using the pillowcases to wrap large, oversized presents for the grandkids! I chose sports related pillowcases for my grandson and girly ones for my granddaughter. So they not only get the gift inside, they have new pillowcases to use all year. The rest of my pillowcases will be used for the Million Pillowcase Challenge. You have heard of this haven't you? The goal is to make 1,000,000 pillowcases for charity. Many quilt shops are participating and there is a list of charities that can be helped....or keep it local and check with your hospitals, etc to find a charity in your area.
Here are the pillowcases I have made this week.

Since I had so much fun making these this week, I want 3 of you to have the same chance! I used this Youtube video from the Missouri Quilt Co. to make the neat hot dog roll method to make the pillowcases. It is so easy...I taught the method to my 7 1/2 year old granddaughter in one afternoon. I am giving away fabric to make a set of pillowcases each. (two pieces for the body, 2 pieces for the cuff and 2 pieces for the trim piece.)
