Are Pillowcases Made Of Gold?

I got a beautiful set of flannel sheets for Christmas. So soft, and warm, I love them. The set came with two pillowcases. I need 4 more. I have a lot of pillows on the bed. I went to Kohl's where the sheets were bought to pick up some more pillowcases. I picked up a a package that was marked $56. Are you kidding me? The cheapest I found at that store was for a package of two for $25. Better, but nowhere near what I'm willing to pay.

I had to go to Target so I figured I'd check there. The cheapest that I found was for around $12 or $17, I was in shock so I can't remember. Again, better, but not what I'm willing to pay. I checked Target online, and apparently, I can get a pair for $6.99, but that's not including shipping.

What's going on here? This is just ridiculous. The original set of sheets cost $29.99! All I want are some reasonably priced pillowcases.

Luckily, I'm surrounded by intelligent people (most of the time.) My daughter suggested, "Why don't you make your own, Mom?" Duh. Great idea. I have yards of  fabric sitting in plastic boxes doing next to nothing. What could be simpler than sewing up a few pillowcases? I'll be sure to post what I come up with.

  1. Pillowcases are great to make! They're a lot of fun, and due to my love affair with my edgestitch presser foot they seem to go really quickly.

    Another cheap way to get pillowcases is at a thrift store, like Goodwill. At most they're $1.99. Usually they're $0.99. I've been doing a lot of embroidery lately, and there is no way I'm paying over $15 on average for a pillowcase!
