Attention all Angel sewers! Our Pillowcase Project is open and seeking your expertise!

Project Deadline is November 3rd!

Pillowcases for our Troops Fall 2018 Project Registration

* indicates required

 

Michael Hagan's face of former Team Herronators is a clear indication of just how special and appreciated our pillowcase shipments have become. 

Each month I ship out homemade fresh new pillowcases to our Troops created by our crafty Angel sewers. We have numerous Teams coming up this fall and winter and the demand is great. I hope you can help or at least spread the word to those who do sew.

Please note that we only ship NEW pillowcases. Do not send used pillowcases. Thank you.

Please read on for all the particulars and how you can lend your Angel expertise! Please contact me with any questions you may have!

"Roll It Up" is one pattern that's easy to follow and produces a beautiful finished pillowcase that's sure to withstand deployments. For all our sewing Angels, I hope you'll give this a try!

HERE ARE OUR PARTICULARS AND RESOURCES FOR OUR PROJECT!


1) This is part 1 of 2:  YouTube video for easy to follow visual instructions.

 

2)  This is part 2 of 2: YouTube video shows how to finish your pillowcase with French seams.

3) Download a copy of the Roll It Up Pillowcase pattern!

4) Yardage needed for multiple pillowcases: I've found these measurements to work well with very little waste. I've found that 100% cotton works well and consider flannel for those chilly winter nights. Jo-Ann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby have a nice line of fabrics and coupons!

* 5 pillowcases ~ Main fabric 44-45" wide ~ 4 yds.;

Border fabric 44-45" wide ~ 1 1/2 yds.

 

* 10 pillowcases ~ Main fabric 44-45" wide ~ 7 3/4 yds.; Border fabric 44-45" wide ~ 3 yds.

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

Please contact me if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you and thank you for considering this special Angel Project!

Many thanks for all YOU do,
Cindy Zamirowski
