Check out this TMNT pillowcase and fleece blanket tutorial! Perfect for kids, gifts and super fans of all ages.
- ½ yard of Kona Cotton Water for accent
- 1 – 1 ½ yd TMNT Cotton for pillowcase
- 2 yards of TMNT Fleece for the blanket
For the Fleece Blanket:
Cut labeled selvedge off and trim the fabric so that the orientation is a proportional rectangle. Use the fabric’s print as a guide.
Sew ½’’ double fold hem along each selvedge
Sew 1’’ double fold hem along the bottom
Sew 2’’ double fold hem along the top
And you’re done!
For the Pillowcase:
Be mindful of the orientation of the TMNT print and which side you want to pillowcase to open on. I did mine so the accent would be on the left side of the pillowcase. I used my son’s pillow, which is a smaller size. You can get away with a yard of fabric for a kid’s size pillow, but a bigger pillow may require more than a yard of fabric, especially to allow for shrinkage during the prewashing.
Serge, zig zag stitch or use pinking shears on the seam allowance to prevent fraying. Flip inside out, so that the right side is now face up.
Fold right sides together and sew the length of the accent fold. Press seam open with an iron. Flip inside out so the seam in concealed.
Fold the width in half and iron so you have a 5’’ width folded piece with 2 raw edges. Almost done!
