Have you heard about the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge hosted by American Patchwork & Quilting? With our help they're trying to get 1 million handmade pillowcases donated to charity for children in need! And they've already passed the half-million mark!
So, this summer there was a contest to choose your favorite APQ Pillowcase Pattern. The winning pattern was #32 Train Pillowcase. We were invited to make a pillowcase using that pattern!
(There are 35 pillowcase patterns available for free on the American Patchwork & Quilt website, here!)
Nordika for the body of the pillow, and Pure Elements Honey and Tender Green for the cuff.
Conkerr Cancer chapter to benefit American Family Children's Hospital here in Madison. I can see the hospital from our apartment, which is pretty cool. Would you spare an afternoon to make a pillowcase too?
