CQQG Community Service Directions for Creating Smiles


How to make:   

   Pillowcases for Cancer Patients

  • We are making pillowcases for the oncology unit at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
  • These pillowcases are bringing smiles to many faces.

    • Finished size: Standard Pillowcase: 20" x 31"
    • Note: Please pre-wash fabric before stitching and then wash completed project in HOT water to remove any germs for the protection of the oncology children.
    • Supplies: 3/4 yard fabric for body; 1/2 yard fabric for border
Sewing Instructions:
  1.  Cut the body of the case 26 1/2" x 40 1/2" and the border 10 1/2" x 40 1/2".
  2.  Fold the border in half lengthwise, wrong sides together and press.
  3.  Place the right side of the border on the right side of the body of the case. Stitch together using 1/2 inch seam allowance.
  4.  Place right sides of the pillowcase together. Stitch down the side and across the bottom.
  5.  Turn to the right side and press.
  6.  Place washed pillowcase in a zip lock plastic bag.
Smile knowing you have brought a smile to a sick child!  THANK YOU!!!
