Learn to Sew Series Lesson #1: How to Sew a Straight Line Lesson One Tutorial
Instead of making the Burp Cloths like the project recommended I applied the same idea to a pillow case for my son. Per the Learn to Sew Pledge: My lines won’t be perfectly straight the first day. Or the second. Maybe not even for a few months. Or years. That’s ok. Nobody cares. I’m doing my best.
Whew! I won't show it here, but there was some deviation from "straight" in this project. I've never sown with fleece before and the material is a bit stretchy. Live and learn!
The monkey flannel and the the blue fleece were remnant box finds. Score! Unfortunately the blue was longer instead of wider so there is a seam in the middle of the blue side but the material is so soft that you can't tell.
On each side I added a pocket for Curious George to sleep in. My son is nuts about George and monkeys are his favorite animals.
The pillow is soooooooooooo soft. Think I'll make some for my husband and I.
