Ella -- Oops, I ordered some of the Michael Miller this afternoon from fabric.com. I'm not familiar with Mary Jane Butter's line, but I can't wait to see it! I also ordered a coordinating for the banding along the opening. I think I should have watched the video, seems Lou mentioned fabric for piping, I'll start looking around for that.

I'm a sucker for fabrics, when I receive the new books for the lines I carry (Spring and Fall), I get so excited -- I love colors, patterns, and the textures!

Piping

Deb, the piping is just another coordinating color of fabric which they make 2 in. wide and then fold in half to further decorate between the pillow case and the "cuff". (27 in. for the body, 9 in. for the cuff, 2 in. for the piping.) Just another stripe of pretty color/pattern.
Lots of great possibilities!!! Can't wait to get together.

Deb, check out the glamping line here.

eQuilter Search

I ordered red, turquoise, pink and yellow fabric with the little campers on it, and will go to Walmart to match up the cuff and trim. Kits will range from $4.00 - $10.00 (that glamping fabric is expensive!) and have everything needed to do the project.

That glamping fabric is really cute, I especially liked the first four with the campers and then the marbles and dots for a contrast (I think it was called marbles and dots). Ella, your kits are very reasonably priced, too bad I jumped the gun, I may just have to buy some of yours to have extras. I ordered enough from fabric.com to do two pillowcases so Frank could have one too. I may have some fabric laying around to do the piping, I believe I have some 1/4" check remnants which are cotton, but I can't remember what colorways they are.

If anyone would be interested sometime, not necessarily this campout, I could demo how to make knife-edge and box-pleat trims. I make it out of either grosgrain ribbon or fabric and have used it on leading edges for drapery panels, on valances, and to embellish pillows (for high-end jobs). This would be for something that is not going to be washed as the pleating would fall out during the wash.

Also, I could show you how to stitch in zippers for pillows which makes the job go very smoothly and turns out a great looking pillow very simply. Again, not saying this time out, but if ever anyone is interested.

Let me know ahead of time so I can bring along what's needed for either the zippers or handmade trims.

Deb

Deb,
My kits are reasonable because I am mixing and matching left-overs from my scrap stash and occasionally purchasing a trim or cuff fabric to coordinate. I'm only putting the kits together so that people can show up and have an option to make a pillowcase without having to go shopping in advance.

For the glamping fabric that I ordered, I will charge the cost/yard for the fabrics included to break evenl I probably won't be selling the left-overs -- just trying to provide kits for everyone that wants to try this pillowcase!

Ella

Deb , Would LOVE to see your demos- at this campout, or another. I do feel that bedding is the most important thing I put in my camper! I need a princess bed with lots of fluff and pillows and quilts! (How 'bout you, DAN? )

Not saying I'm an expert, but I know there are many ways to accomplish the same end in most things people do. The technique I use for pillows is one that many workrooms use to get those zippers in and the pillow cover sewn as quickly as possible, because for us, time is money. With this technique, as well as getting the zipper in and looking nice, the corners are no longer a problem. If I remember, I'll also share the trick to making certain toss pillows do not have the dreaded "dog ears" at the corners.

The handmade trims are something that is fun to do and something that not everyone has, although they do take time to do them correctly.

I'm always open to learning new techniques and can't wait to do these pillow cases!

Deb
