As a sponsor of the One Million Pillowcase Challenge, we’re excited to participle in the annual Blog Hop via All People Quilt. The One Million Pillowcase Challenge has a goal of donating 1,000,000 pillowcases to charity! To help reach this goal, APQ is having a 24-hour Sew-a-thon in September at their headquarters in Des Moines, IA.
And, shops and groups across the country are doing their own Sew-a-thons! To find a shop in your area, click here.
We recently made this pillowcase for the challenge. We used the Free pattern: Pillowcase Pattern #21 – Pillowcase with Rickrack Band. Fabrics include Sock Monkey Play Time Baby Blue from Sock Monkeys, Swiss Dot Red/Snow from Cuddle Classics and Cuddle 3 Black from the Kozy Cuddle Collection.
If you’d like to make a pillowcase with Cuddle, find Shannon Fabrics at local quilt shops and fabric stores, and also at online retailers.
We will be donating our pillowcase to a local charity for children in Los Angeles. Won’t you help by making some pillowcases? Comment below with the hashtag #APQSewathon and let us know where you will donate yours!
