Pillowcases for Children in the Hospital
Ongoing ProjectTurn your pillowcases into Darla Snider if you make them on your own.The pillowcases made will be split between the St. Louis Children's Hospitals and Southeast Hospital
See Darla Snider or Linda Tansil if you have questions.
Supplies neededYou can print out the directions.
The directions are have notes where you can by less fabric and cut slightly larger -- orignal pattern fromMillion Pillowcase Project ).
You provide your own fabric, bring your machine and basic sewing supplies. Don't forget 4 pins.
Ironing stations and cutting stations are provided.
You will need 3/4 yd. for the body of the pillow and 1/3 yard for the border.
Cheerful 100% cotton fabric or cotton flannel only. Think sports, bugs, horses, dolls, toys, etc. Southeast Hospital requested the fabric should be appropriate for kids 12 and under. The St. Louis Hospitals need fabrics for young children and for teens.
Please wash your fabric before coming. Go ahead and cut it following the directions at the website, if you wish. That will just speed up the session.
