I love the tradition of making small changes around the home to celebrate the holidays. While I don’t conduct a full transformation or unpack a lot of seasonal décor, I do try and change a few things to make it fun for my kids. Even better if they involve a little handmade goodness.

Holiday pillowcases are such a great way to celebrate, especially because they are a “decoration” your children (or spouse!) will use and enjoy daily. They are simple to make and giftbaby pillow set, and if sewn with a good quality flannel they will be cozy and warm for years.

For Halloween I wanted to take advantage of the colorblocking trend and make some candy corn inspired pillowcases. I added some decorative topstitching so they appear to be handstitched but were whipped out quickly. My girls love them! They’ll be snuggling with these nightly through Thanksgiving!


Step 1) Cut the fabric.

Cut your fabric so that you have the following pieces:

White flannel: 11″ x 42″

Orange flannel: 11″ x 42″

Yellow flannel: 11″ x 42″

Step 2) Make the “;candy corn”; stripes.

With right sides together, pin the orange and white pieces together along one long edge.

Stitch using a 1/2″-wide seam allowance.

With right sides together, pin the remaining raw long edge of the orange piece to the yellow piece.

Stitch using a 1/2″-wide?seam allowance.

Press seams allowances to one side. Zigzag or serge the raw edges of the seam

allowance to finish (this will prevent fraying).

Hem the raw edge of the white section by turning it under to the wrong side ?″ and then 1″ again and stitching close to the folded edge.

On the right side of the fabric, topstitch ?1/4″ to 1/2″?from the seam: Stitch on the orange side of the orange-white seam and on the yellow side of the yellow-orange seam. You can use a straight stitch or a decorative stitch. I love stitch 713 on my BERNINA 580 because it looks like handstitching.

Step 3) Construct the pillowcase.

With right sides together, fold the pillowcase in half. Stitch from the hemmed white edge along the long side of the pillowcase, then pivot and sew along the short edge of the pillowcase. Match the seams?between your color blocks?and use a 1/2″-wide?seam allowance. Serge or zigzag stitch the seam allowances to finish.

Turn the pillowcase right side out and press.

Fold and wrap to giveaway or stuff with a down pillow and enjoy this sweet pillowcase yourself!

I took the girls to the zoo this weekend and I had some fun FINALLY experimenting with my zoom lens. It was cool to take some photos of something other than the kids for once. So, I came home with some cool animal shots and I was trying to think of something to do with them here on Prudent Baby. Here is a DIY for these little watercolor silhouettes that I made.
