And it’s black, so my hair dye stains won’t show up on it. Also, I really like black. Roommate’s cat isn’t allowed on the pillow, however, as he is orange and has claws.
So I found a remnant piece of nice, smooth fabric for really cheap, saved up, and bought it. I looked up the dimensions of a pillowcase and sized my french seams to fit it. There wasn’t any cutting of the fabric needed because it was a small piece- about one yard.
Now I’ve got a really soft thing to sleep on. Yay! Anything to maybe help me sleep a little more. (Really, though. I’ve heard lots of great things about the benefits of sleeping on such a pillowcase. The fabric feels really soft, so why not try it?)
The fabric was really persnickety. I’m glad that I was just doing such simple seams on it. Good practice for work later. :)
