I can't think of anything more comforting on a cold night than a soft, warm pillow. The second addition to the hope chest is a pair of pillowcases made up in a soft-as-suede, 100% cotton flannel, purchased from Connecting Threads. The color is called Honeysuckle, a cheerful, bright yellow.
I found this, "Easy Tube Pillowcase Tutorial", on YouTube:
They were very easy to make and are a good, generous size; most pillowcases that come with flannel sheet sets are so small I have trouble getting pillows inside them.
Have you started a hope chest? Are you making things to put inside? I'd like to see them.
Think about it,
