Before you hit the road for your summer family vacation, make sure you have all the things for a stress free ride with the kiddies.
Here’s a list we never leave without..you can never have too many options when trying to figure out how to entertain children on a long road trip.
Snacks & water
Art supply case
Car Bucks & rewards
And…a travel pillow
Today I’m going to show you how to make the little ones a travel pillowcase that is so easy it can be done in an hour! So let’s get started so you can start packing for that vaca.
1 half yard for the cuff
1 half yard for the body
Pillow form. I used a 16″ x 12″
Basic sewing supplies
Use 3/8″ seam allowances
Cut the cuff fabric 6″ x 25-1/4″
Cut the body fabric 13″ x 31″
Making the cuff:
With right sides together, sew the short ends together and press the seam open.
Fold the cuff in half, wrong sides together and press.
Making the body:
With right sides together, sew the 2 side seams leaving the top open.
Trim the seams to 1/4″ and stitch the raw edges using a zig zag stitch to reduce fraying.
Turn right sides out and slip the cuff over the body, right sides together, matching the raw edges and the side seams. Pin well. Sew around the cuff/body opening.
Trim the seam allowance to 1/4″ and use a zig zig stitch to reduce the fraying.
Press the seam allowance toward the body of the pillowcase. At this point, feel free to add a top stitch if desired. Otherwise, you’re all finished!
So tell me girls…where will you be traveling this summer?
