Ruffle a few feathers

The end of the school year is approaching. My full time teaching contract has ended and I am back on call, thus I have some time on my hands. Here I am bored looking for inspiration when I stumble across Jennifer's blog Tattertots and Jello. I loved her burlap ruffle table runner. But not having any burlap at home I decided to take her idea, tweak it and turn it into a pillowcase. Luckily I just happened to have a feather pillow laying around just begging for a pillowcase.

I had a whole bunch of Amy Butler fabric in blue/green tones so I grabbed a few, cut them into 3.5" x 40" strips and created 7 long ruffles. I used 2 fat quarters for the front and back of the pillowcase, attached a zipper and created a pretty funky pillowcase.

Did you notice my last 3 posts are all colour coordinated? Ha!
