These young women (ages 12-13) came to my house last month to learn how to make these fun pillowcases. We spent about 2 hours, and they got everything done, except the last hand stitching. One girl did finish the whole pillowcase. I was so proud of them and their hard work. We made a few mistakes along the way (with me telling them the wrong thing to do, hee hee), but seam rippers took care of that! What a sweet time it was!
