I enjoyed your post on Stash Manicure very much. It's always good if you can have some fun while doing all the work on a blog. And the tute was well done. Now if I can only figure out how to have my cake and sew, too!

Great post on Stash Manicure! What a great tutorial. Pillowcases in this house perform tricks like socks do in other homes--they disappear, one at a time. I'm off to my stash in the morning light to see what I can create. Thanks.

Wonderful to see you over at Stash today. These pillowcases are so fast and easy - you did a great tutorial that should reach a lot of quilters new to the 'hot dog'.

Christine M said...

Great tutorial over at Stash Manicure. I love that you call the pillowcases 'hot dogs'!

gill said...

I've come over from Stash Manicure!

linda said...

I was just over at Sew We Quilt and didn't leave my favorite snack in my comment over there.
I'm a tea dinker (in the summer it's usually iced) so I like to have an assortment of chocolate cookies and wafers that I can sometimes dunk. But I always turn to Milano cookies for my go to chocolate fix and snack attacks.

Frances said...

Interesting post. Love the hot dog method. Thanks.

Deborah said...

With 8 grandbabies, I will, no doubt, be giving these pillowcases a try! Love the method, and the name!

kt said...

Loved your tutorial over on Stash Manicure--thanks for sharing your hotdog method!

Thank-you for your great tutorial on pillowcases. I always wanted to try one but couldn't figure out how to make one without raw edges! I'm not a chocolate lover, but salty anything does the trick for me!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Tamie said...

Thanks for the tutorial on Stash Manicure and the giveaway.

Renea said...

Love this fabric. Thanks for the great tutorial and for the giveaway.

Greatest method for making the pillowcases - I also like to sew the narrow little flange into the band during construction so that it does not need to be pressed down everytime. Thanks for such a wonderful tutorial. Judy C in NC

Karen said...

I can't wait to give the pillowcase a try!

Stray Stitches said...

Thanks for the wonderful tutorial you provided over at Stash Manicure!

Kathy H said...

I just found you over at Stash Manicure. I will be following your blog now and enjoyed your review of the pens. I had read about these pens and thought I would get some but then saw somewhere else about the return of your markings and now you have confirmed it. Probably hot a good idea to use on fabric. I guess it would be ok if you were embroidering and didn't need the markings to disappear. Thanks for the review and tutorial at stash manicure.

Linda V said...

Thanks for the tutorial on pillowcases! I like to topstitch my narrow band for added strength. I am keeping your instructions for future pillowcases! Thanks for the giveaway!

Bonnie said...

I love your tutorial as I am a visual learner. Thanks.
I don't eat when sewing as I am too messy and don't want to mess my fabric.

Kim Schafer-Jones said...

I'm follow'g you now...as a kind and considerate quilt stalker, thought I'd let you know! ;)

BTW...BEST IN SHOW as far a Tute's go...

AND, to let you know, if you have a bowl of Peanut M&M's by your machine at ALL TIMES...you seams will be PERFECT Scant 1/4" and always straight! ;)

No charge for the tip, just paying it forward! ♥

Lee said...

Your post on SM was great. thanks for the tutorial. I do love my coffee and sometimes the ants on a log for a snack!

Nancy said...

Great directions. I love the jelly roll. Thanks, Nancy P.

Michelle said...

I liked your tutorial. Which reminds me, I need to make time to do a pillowcase. Thanks for the chance!

Great job over at the Stash site.
I love the slug bug material, my grandson is always spotting those little critters, he would love that case for sure.

I'm waaaaayyy too messy for quilting snacks. As much as I'd like to nibbling on dark chocolate while working with fabric, I had better stick to plain old water.

Great Tute!!!! I have been making pillowcases for everyone since my first grandchild (twins!) were 6 months old....they are almost 18yo now and they, as well as their cousins ,EXPECT a new one for every holiday, birthday and even if I get some new fabric they just love!!! AND now since the three girls each have a (hot) boyfriend I was asked if the males would be receiving pillowcases also ..for everything!!!! I am new to Stash Manicure and I am just wondering what took me sooo long to find all of you!!!??? As to my favorite quilting treat to eat while sewing..anything chocolate that doesn't make a mess and get all over my project!!!

Kate said...

That made me want to make a pillow case. And trust me, I don't own enough fabric yet to make a pillow case!

Joanne said...

Great tutorial, and I love making these pillowcases. A group of us make these for local shelters and they are great. Using this method is easy enough for kids so I organize sew-ins for youth groups to make these as a service project. Of course, there's always food there and we have a great time. I feel like it's my responsibility to teach young people how wonderfully sewing and food go together. :-)

Lucy said...

Great post on Stash Manicure. I've not seen the slug bug fabric in my travels. LOVE IT!!

Charlene S said...

I used this method for pillowcases this past Christmas to make gifts for my 18 grandchildren. They all loved them! My favorite quilting food is Kisses along with a Jelly Roll.

Linda in PA said...

Thanks for the tutorial over on Stash Manicure. I'm going to try this method the next time I make a pillowcase. Thanks for the giveaway, too.

Mary said...

Great tutorial! I love the lovebug fabric. I would love to someday own a red bug.
My food of choice when sewing is chocolate, either York peppermint patties or Dove dark chocolates, preferably the ones laced with almonds.

DebbieM said...

Thanks for the tutorial on Stash Manicure. I'm a follower of yours for a while now. Thanks again for the giveaway.

Sherrill said...

I LOVE pillowcases--almost instant gratification! LOL Today, my quilty snack was gummy lifesavers!

evelyn said...

Great post on Stash. I will be sewing tonight! I forgot to say, that I drink coffee while quilting. Ice cream bars in freezer, so I get my exercise and stretch often!

Marcia W. said...

Thank you for the enjoyable post on Stash Manicure. If it isn't dark chocolate or cow tails candy, it's cheez-its as quilting "provisions." Please enter me into the pillowcase giveaway.

Great post at stash, that is the kind of Hot Dog I enjoy. But while quilting, M & M's. Melt in your mouth and not your hands!!
