For a gift, I found a special fabric, and made up these fungi-printed pillowcases. What's special is that they are made like a sham, so that the pillow is completely enclosed -- but they can still be used like a regular pillowcase if the owner is feeling lazy, and just wants to change the linens quickly.

Others might find this a good idea to have on that "last-minute" gift list; if you serge the seams, stitching these up would take no time at all, and the opportunities for a cheery present are as endless as the fabric choices. Silk in a favorite color for a special treat? Blue skies for a child trapped indoors with the flu? A fast refresher for a tired bedrooom?

Great gift idea! I figure my friends have enough “stuff”. I have been making aprons and tea towels. Shams is a cool idea. Checked out your blog. I can certainly relate! All the nature and animal prints are cartoon-ish where I am too. Mushrooms likely wouldn’t last a day. The bolts of black, red and deep burgundy flannel with white line drawings of bears and moose were gone within 2-3 days. Btw, cotton poly velour makes great pillowcases. Cozy winter sleeping.

Very nice idea! Coincidentally, I was changing pillow cases yesterday and was wondering about the fiber content of my favorite cases - they remain wrinkle-free, don't shrink and stay cool at night (which is a yay for me :-) Thanks for the post - it is nudging me forward to look into making my own. Oh, and what a thoughtful gift for your relative - they must have loved them!

Love your fabric suggestions, sewingcanary! And wouldn't I like to get my hands on some dark flannel with line drawings of bear and moose! (Perfect for pj loungers!) Also, glad to have inspired you, ceedee!
