This is one of the most expensive fabrics that I have ever purchased! Our oldest grandson is a big fan & his 18th birthday is coming up. I spent the better part of a year searching on-line & in stores for cotton Coca Cola Fabrics to make him a quilt & had very little luck finding any. Well I did manage to pay a stupid amount for what ended up being a 5x7 print out on a piece of muslin. So what I thought was Coca Cola Fabric was really not. Lesson learned....... read the very small print on everything. I have no idea what I will use this small pc for but I will use it on something! So when hubs found this ridiculously expensive fabric I bought a yard & made this pillow slip case for him. I used my embroidery machine to stitch out tiny hearts along the white piping because I wanted it to be tacked down. I do hope to make him something else Coca Cola related before his birthday on the 16th of this month. Thanks Bev for reminding me about the sausage pillow case tute on line

I bought a piece of Coke flannel at the thrift store a while ago... it's about a yard, and you are welcome to it if I can find it. I'll pm you if I do to get an address to send it to.

Found it! PM me your email address and I'll send you a picture and if you want it, it's yours! It's lightweight flannel, mostly white with print, and about a yard.

Must be popular with the males......I have a friend/client who just had me put coke stuff on towels for her hubby's bathroom and she is in the middle of making a quilt out of this same fabric......it is cool!

The pillowcase is an original one of a kind - great job! The print would look nice framed. Both are unique. Hugs

Your case turned out very nice. I too, love making the sausage pillowcases...I bought this flannel Coca-Cola fabric to make Pj's for son-in-law. He too is a collector. If I see any,I'll give you a heads up. Good luck and wish him Happy Birthday.-Toogie

Looks good. The cuff and contrast piece realy make the red pop! This is the way I make my cuffed cases. Makes them so nicely.

Dear Loralye,

What a fabulous gift and he'll love it as you made it for him. Fabrics cost a fortune here in Australia. So glad you found this and the pillowcase looks great. Love Chris
