Pretty Pillowcase

I am determined to be able to sew. I have resigned myself to the fact I should never sew someone a gift, but I can sew for myself and overlook the crooked lines.

I wanted to recreate this pillowcase for my body pillow.

I placed out my scraps in order

 fabric scraps

The back piece is one solid piece that is black and white striped.

I added some eyelet at the end. I intended to add some strips in the middle but after sewing everything together I couldn’t figure out how to add the strips. I would obviously benefit from some sewing tutorials.

And my finished product-

My pillowcase measures 52×21. Well its supposed to measure that…..with my cutting skills it could be smaller or longer. But seriously, isn’t my new pillowcase pretty?
