A pillowcase under the sea

It's been a while since I've had my sewing machine out. I blame the small but very sweet ball of fluff pictured below who has recently come to live with us. He's taking up a lot of my time at the moment! However, before he arrived, I had chance to make a quick pillowcase for Alex as a simple Valentines present. I found the fabric in the fabric shop Beyond Fabrics on Columbia Road ages ago and it reminded me of a silly fish based song Alex often sings when feeling cheery...

After the complexities of following a pattern in my previous skirt project, pillowcases are deliciously simple. They don't even need a zip, just one side of the case folded over and sewn inside.

Hopefully I'll be able to get my sewing machine out again soon - when this little one  has got more settled in...
