Following the simple steps below, any size new or gently used pillow case can be quickly turned into a prized possession for a grateful little girl in Africa. Pillow case patterns are only a suggestion, so feel free to use your own simple pattern and material if you’d rather! PLEASE NO STRAIGHT PINS! PLEASE DO NOT SUBSTITUTE RIBBONS FOR ELASTIC. They are not sturdy enough for the wear in Africa! thanks.
