Crafty gemini burrito pillow case tutorial
Our neighbor's son is graduating from college today. We have known this young man since from before he was born and he and my own son were playmates as kids. He is leaving the Seattle area to attend law school on the east coast and so I made him something to remember his home by. When he is homesick he can lay his head upon this and dream of Western Washington state.
Note the cute "Congratulations" tag on the front.
All fabrics from "In The Beginning" fabrics, a local company. Pattern is from Crafty Gemini blog.
Because this print is very directional, I had to switch the orientation of the fabric. Instead of going across the WOF, I cut a 45 inch piece along the length of the print and used that as my "width". Otherwise the print would be tipped 90 degrees and that would just look weird.
When making this pattern consider if your fabric has a specific direction to the print and adjust accordingly.
