My daughter, who is seven, is always asking me what my favorite this or that is. And of course she wants me to ask her what her favorites are. I happily oblige. I remember liking to ask people these very questions. In the are of fruit, watermelon is always her answer for favorite fruit. I was at the store and this pattern just jumped out and said, "pick me".
Besides the pillowcase, I made a lunch bag. I watched Angry Chicken's video on how to make these sandwich bags. So easy and funny, you think, this is not going to come out right and magically it does.
Lay a 17 x 5 (or whatever dimensions you like) piece of fabric out.
Zig zag or serge the edges. On one short side turn down a 1/4 inch and then turn down a 1/4 inch again.
Lay fabric right side up.
Turn aabout 2 1/2inches of the short end down. THis will become your foldover for the top of the bag.
Now bring the bottom up and cover the 2 1/2 inches you just turned down.
Sew along the two sides.
Turn right side out.
