I modified a plan from Knock-Of Wood to create this TV Storage unit. It's 2 bookshelves with a top and the face joining the shelves. There is plenty of room underneath for storing those items that aren't used very often. I put furniture sliders under it so it moves rather easily.

How To Make a Pillowcase
You might want to use the child's favorite characters or something to match their room. I used white because I wanted to applique their names on the case. I used a print for the edge that will match a quilt that I am making for Christmas. I cut out a large rectangle (22 x 54) and fold it in half so that I only have 2 side seams. I use a serger for the seams so that I don't have so much fraying. You can cut this out with pinking shears to limit the frayed edges.
|I cut out a strip (8 x 44) for the edge. I fold it in half lengthwise and iron. Then I open it back up and sew the ends together. If your fabric isn't wide enough you can cut 2 pieces (8 x 22) and sew the ends together and accomplish the same thing.|
Now fold the piece in half along the ironed edge. With right sides together pin the edge to the case and sew or serge them together.
And there you have a pillowcase.
