Hooray for me (but whoops!)

I made an OBV pillowcase!! It's the second thing I've made with the serger (the first being a "tester" dolly blanket that I gave to DD1)

So the pillowcase is really cute BUT I am such a dork! I forgot to put the "end" on first and already sewed down the sides so I'm trying to figure out how to attach the folded over part without sewing it shut with the serger?! I don't know if that made sense lol

OBV pillowcase sounds delicious. I am having trouble picturing what you are saying though

If I'm picturing this correctly, I'm thinking you can sew than end on like you would the waistband for longies. That *should* work but I'm probably way wrong!

Oh, and HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY MAMA!! I wish you would have told me! I hope you had a great day!

Thanks I think I figured it out. On the next one I'm going to sew the folded back end part onto each side before sewing the sides together (front and back)

It's sooo soft. I tested it out on a pillow to make sure it fits (I used an old case as a pattern) I need to get more OBV or OCV because it takes a lot to make a pillowcase lol
