Pillowcase Pattern: The guild encourages quilting and sewing for various charitable causes. We regularly make pillowcases for various organizations, including the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), and the Home for Little Wanderers. Our pillowcases for DCF are made for the December holidays and are stuffed with various age-appropriate toys, school supplies, and necessities. You may make a pillowcase for this project using winter or Christmas fabrics. One file below contains instructions which include a decorative flange between the case’s cuff and body, the other contains instructions without the decorative flange.
