Hot Dog Pillowcase-Revisited

I had the opportunity to work with my neighbor, Gail, who hadn’t sewn in many years. Her two daughters had fabric they picked out for new pillow cases, and mom got her first taste of sewing on more than a basic machine!

In the photo she’s doing the bun around the hotdog step! Since Stella and Fiona had helped pin some of the other steps, they were proud of the pillow cases they helped make! Maybe we have some future sew-ers here. Fiona wants to take our Kids’ Sewing Class in the fall. Stella can start when she’s a little older.

If you want to teach someone to sew, or are sewing for or with children, the Hot Dog Pillow Case is a fun, easy way to start! We showed it a while back with Cheryl’s grandsons, and thought we’d mention it again, in case it might fit into your summer sewing. You can download either the adult or the child instructions at no charge here:  Hot Dog Pillow Case Pattern and Children’s Hot Dog Pillowcase Pattern.

I’ll be attending the Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show Wednesday afternoon through Friday morning.  Please introduce yourself if you see me.  (I’ll be wearing purple!)

Happy summer sewing! Hard to believe summer’s coming to an end!
