These pillowcases were super easy to sew, and follow this basic 15-Minute Pillowcase tutorial found on Craftsy (affiliate link).

Riley Blake generously provided bolts of fabric for the guild to use, and while two ladies were cutting fabrics, the rest of us started assembling lots and lots of pillowcases--over 100, in fact!
While I sewed several pillowcases at the event, I spent most of my time ironing! The most fun was chatting with everyone and even winning a door prize bundle of fabric!
I used this same method late last year to sew up over 20 pillowcases for the students in my daughter's kindergarten class. It is super easy and fast and would make a great project to teach someone how to sew or how to create French seams. It's now my go-to method for sewing pillowcases!
Sewing has introduced me to such a wonderful community of kind, generous people and businesses. I am so thankful for opportunities like this one with the women of the Music City Quilt Guild, and I look forward to working with them again in the future on other charity sewing projects.
We all have ways in which we can help someone in need or brighten the day of a friend. I'm blessed that I may help others with my love of sewing!
Do you volunteer your sewing skills for any particular charity? I'd love to learn about other worthy causes, so be sure to leave me a comment!
Have FUN sewing!
