Partridge Pillowcase

We do have a mania for old sitcoms and for a while it was The Partridge Family. When I saw the crazy daisy fabric, I instantly thought of Shirley Jones and her gang. It took me a long time to decide what to make out of this fabric, but I decided if I loved it and just wanted to stare at it, a pillowcase would be useful and accomplish that idea.








I had to sew the pink edge on three or four times before I figured out how to get it on with no raw edge to unravel and create a mass of strings after washing. I finally decided to fold the edge under on the wrong side. Now I just need to make my husband a matching one with a blue edge. How could he not wake up in love?

    1. Thank you! I did get the blue edged one done, and I have to say they make a lovely pair and bring out my inner Partridge.
