HIS & HER Pillow Cases

diy his and her Valentine's Day pillowcases by Sew Sweet Vintage
HIS & HER pillowcases are perfect for Valentine's Day! Curious Doodles embroidered set below got me inspired. 
don't embroider, so I created a knock-off set using fabric fuse and floral fabric. You can purchase my His & Her pillowcases in my Etsy shop Sewsweetvintageco! If your feeling crafty, follow my guide below!
How-to
This fusible product is super to work with. Just follow the box directions.
I used stencil letters, but you could print your own and trace!!! Make sure you place your letters backwards on your fused fabric to trace.  I'm showing them right side up below for the photo.

  You can just barely see the letter traced below. 

 Once your letters are cut, remove the paper from the back. I use the point of my seam ripper to help separate the paper from the fabric. 
Lay letters out onto your pillow case. 
Be sure to cover your letters with a dampened cloth, before ironing letters in place. I use a piece of white pillow case left over from another project. When the fabric is dry it's the right amount of ironing! Covering the letters before ironing also keeps the iron from scorching the pillow case. 
 
 The finished result is super sweet. 
I machine stitched the edges of the letters for durability!
