Half Million Pillowcase Celebration
To celebrate reaching 500,000 pillowcases donated to our One Million Pillowcase Challenge, we had some of our favorite designer friends make one of our free pillowcase patterns. See what they came up with and visit their blogs to hear more about their pillowcases.
Coats & Clark's and FreeSpirit's Pillowcase
Coats & Clark says: "Did you know you could use multi color threads for applique? We love the cute pattern the thread creates around the train cars."
FreeSpirit says: "Of course our interpretation is more than a pillow case with a number, but a pillow case with a message. The train will keep chugging along to reach 1 Million Pillowcases . . . 1 million smiles, 1 million bits of love, 1 million stitched of your hands and from your hearts!"
Fabrics are from the Beechwood Park collection by Jenean Morrison, the Shelbourne Falls collection by Denyse Schmidt, the World Tour collection by Parson Gray, the Notting Hill collection by Joel Dewberry, and Designer Essential Solids all from FreeSpirit Fabric.
