Jenny’s Monthly Pillowcases

Mark’s granddaughter Jenavive (we call her Jenny) will be one year old December 17th (the day after my birthday!).  I decided to make her pillowcases, started out with only a few then just kept making them.  When I was done I realized I almost had enough for one every month.  So then I made a few more so I could have one for every month.  Course, after I got them all done, I thought I should embroider the month on them.  It turned into a really big project, but I had fun making them.  And I hope they are something she will treasure for a long time.

I should have turned this fabric the other way, it is backwards.  Sad smile  But not really worth doing over.

This one I probably should have turned the other way also, but for some reason I focused on the green ivy heart and the birdhouse, but it seems like more of the other items are upside down, the deer, stocking, tree, snowman and the house.  I hate when I do things like that.  But it still looks cute.

I made these pillowcases using the tube method.  Missouri Star Quilt Company has a great youtube video here:
