I used the tutorial at Film in the Fridge to make the two sets of pillowcases featured below.
The zebra striped cases are a Christmas gift for my nine year old cousin. After relocating to Kansas she asked her mother to paint her new room purple with zebra stripes. So three walls are purple and one wall is indeed zebra striped. It's quite striking.
My mother has made a zebra striped fleece throw for her as well.
Her brother, my young 11 year old old cousin, is into skulls. I made these last winter for his birthday. He very politely thanked me for them. I noticed them on his bed quite a few times. However, I had no idea what a hit I'd made with them until his mother told me that when she takes them off to wash them and replaces them with others, he immediately puts the skulls back on when they come out of the laundry. That's the kind of news that makes this quilter smile!
So new skull pillowcases for Christmas. I hope he likes them as well as the others.
What do the following two items have in common?

(You can see a slice of the cheerful quilted table-topper / wall-hanging that P from The Way I Sew It made for me. Thanks P.! But that's another blog topic for another day.)
