• Use cheery, colorful fabrics.

• Many patients are adolescent boys and girls, pillowcases appropriate to teens are always needed.

• Cotton or flannel only – no glittery fabrics.

3/4 yard of fabric for pillowcase

1/3 yard of fabric for border of pillowcase

Sewing Instructions:
Cut the body of the case 26 1/2″ x 40 1/2″ and the border 10 1/2″ x 40 1/2″.

Fold the border in half lengthwise, with the wrong sides together, and press.

Place the right side of the border on the right side of the body of the case. Stitch together using a 1/2″ seam allowance.

Place right sides of the pillowcase together. Stitch down the side and across the bottom. Turn to the right side and press.

Please finish seams so the pillowcases will not fray.

Note: Make sure to wash the fabric for the protection of the children. Place each completed pillowcase in a one-gallon zippered plastic bag. Pillowcases must be dropped off at a designated drop off site or mailed to 1314 N. Orchard Beach Dr., Port Clinton, OH 43452. Do not deliver directly to the hospitals.
