You say Pillow Cases I say Pillow Slips.

   My Grammy B used to make pretty pillowslips for all her family. We didn't call them pillowcases like most everyone else did. No, they were pillowslips. All her grandchildren, and she had close to three dozen not counting the greats, loved sleeping on Grammy B. pillowslips. In honor of my Grammy I've decided to make pillowcases and pillowslips as the first gift item I offer for sale on Sewciables. Please check back soon for an explanation of the difference.
   Prices will start at $10.00 each. Pictured below are examples of pillowcases I've made in the past.

Check back soon to know the difference between pillowcases, as shown above, and pillowslips.

Welcome to the home of Sewciables where you will find hand created gifts worth talking about.  In the weeks and moths to come, I will be adding photos of items I have for sale along with photos of items I have made for others. Most items not listed as “for sale” are available as “made to order”. The fabrics and other materials pictured on "sold" items may not be available since much of my work is custom, using vintage or recycled fabric/clothing and other materials. This keeps my costs on pre-made items very reasonable. That said, if you have clothing you no longer wear but still love, you might think about having something made from it. I will be happy to help you with the details.
   Below you will see some close up photos of work I have done in the past. These examples will give you an idea of the quality of my work.
   These next two pictures are of topstitching on pockets on lawn chair cushions I remade for a customer.

   Next shows detail of a total zipper replacement.

    Luckily I'm better at sewing detail than taking pictures of it.
