So I was surfing around Etsy, when I found a seller that had fat quarters of Sailor Moon fabric. Since Sailor Moon was my gateway into Japanese animation, I ended up buying all four FQs that were for sale. I showed it to a couple of friends who also liked Sailor Moon and they asked me to make something for them. I decided to make flange pillowcases since I've never done them before. I used the Sailor Moon fabric on the fronts and cheap fat quarters from Hancock for the backs.

Action shots of the front and back of the first pillowcase. The pillow is too big but it was the best fit I had:

I didn't know that the fabric I bought had John Deere logos on it until I was ready to use it. Thankfully, my friends have a weird sense of humor. It's East meets West!

And a close up of the showcase fabric for good measure:

I still have two fat quarters left, mailed to me as a long rectangle, but honestly I don't want to make it into anything. I want to hoard for myself as is. As a crafty gal, does that make me crazy? Tongue Either way, I'm happy with how these came out and my friends love them.

Just starting as a craftster!

haha, so cute! i'm really into japanese animation too, and the first anime i ever saw was an episode of sailor moon where she kisses a caterpillar (it was a long time ago, and my memory is hazy), but ever since then i've always loved everything manga and anime!

Peace out homeslice.

Haha, Sailor Moon is the ultimate gateway anime.
Love your pillows! If I were you, I'd hoard the fabric too. You'll never know when the perfect project will come along.

Hold on to that fabric! So cute! All the girls are there, even the Outers which I don't see often on merchandise. I hope your friends know how lucky they are!
