I managed to squeeze in some sewing time to finish these pillowcases for Carol when my children were watching a movie. I have my sewing cabinet set up behind our couch in the family room so I can sort of watch along as I sew. I think this arrangement is working out pretty good because I've been able to just sit and sew more than I usually do.

I finished sewing the bottom and side seams together and left them on my ironing board to come back and press them so I can do finish the cuff.

Here are the pillowcases. I made 6 of them. I just bought 1 yard of each print  so I can make 2 pillowcases out of 2 yards of fabric. I'll make a tutorial to share after I finish my SIL's bag.

Very nice!

These are so cute! I might need to make so too, and seeing how it's after the 4th, similar fabric should be on sale. Pillowcases are so easy, but if you do a tutorial on it, I'll check it out to see if I can pick up some tips.

Very bright and colorful.

That's a great idea. My sewing machine is in the den, but it is at a right angle to the tv so that makes it a little difficult.
