Pillowcase Tutorial...

Thank you for all the generous comments you left about the Flying Cloud quilts and pillowcases. I headed to the studio today, and have created and uploaded a pdf tutorial for anyone interested in knowing how to make pillowcases like mine.

The tutorial is free and you are welcome to photocopy it to share with your sewing friends. I only ask that you do not kit or sell my pattern...and if you're a shopkeeper or guild member who would like to give away multiple quantities of my pattern, please contact me first for permission. I'll be glad to give permission if you ask me first. (After all, it's just the nice thing to do.)

To download the pattern, go to the top of my blog and click on the "Free Patterns and Tutorials" button under my header. (Here's a link to get you to my main page.) Once on my patterns page, scroll down to the "Free Pattern Downloads" (right under the acorn ornament photo). There is a white scroll bar on the right side of the Boxnet widget. The patterns are in alphabetical order, and the name of the tutorial is "BW Pillowcase Tutorial". (Well, of course it is!) When you click on the BW Pillowcase Tutorial, it will automatically download to your desktop.

I've made every effort to be accurate (and spell correctly), but if you find an error or have a question, please don't hesitate to contact me. If you make a pillowcase using my tutorial, I'd love to see what it looks like. I'll be opening a Flickr group called the Brynwood Pillowcase Club so we can all upload our pillowcases for others to see. Have fun! I can't wait to see what you create.

REMINDER: Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for my Second Blog Birthday giveaway. The drawings will close at 11 pm. Good Luck!

Thank you Donna for giving us a turtorial..I love making pillow cases and make some every year for gifts for my 3 sons that drive semi over the road. I use a theme for each one that is something they like and they think it is such a great gift...but so simple for me to do :)

That was certainly quick! Ask and ye shall receive. Donna you continue to amaze me. Thank you for sharing your technique for your lovely Cloud Cottage pillowcases. Happy Wednesday...

What a great tutorial. I made my first pillowcase last year and have been meaning to make another one. I also love your "white wing dove" tute. Though I can't quilt, I'm thinking maybe I can make one without the quilting part. I'm sure I'll be singing Stevie Nicks all day now too. :)
