I guess I am on a pillow kick. Yesterday it was a pillow for your phone, today it is a case for your pillow. I am working on Easter gifts and I love to make and give pillowcases. I picked these cute fabrics up at Joann’s and I love how they turned out. I bought the end of the bolt of the top piece and I wanted to make 8 pillowcases as I like to give them as sets so I made the top piece smaller than I normally would so that I had enough to do all eight. I did not buy enough of the purple to do all eight as it was quite expensive. I decided I would look around at different stores for more fabric that was similar. This one I am working on a tutorial also. Happy Tuesday!
Well, I finally finished my housewarming gift for my sister(hopefully she is not reading this) now I just have to get it in the mail to Texas.
I made the embroidered and then quilted potholder and embroidered on two kitchen towels. I add a few kitchen scrubbers and a welcome sign. Hopefully they will bring cheer to her new home!
No, I have not forgotten about posting to my blog, I just feel like if I don’t have a picture I should not post. I know, kinda silly. Our “kids craft day” on Sunday went really well. It was a day that the kids get some time to put together handmade gifts for their friends. We had 7 kids (My older sister’s 3, my younger sister’s 3 and my 1). We made over 20 notebook covers. They turned out really cute, but there are many more to make. The idea was for the kids to each make 2 or 3, well it turns out that they have lots of friends and each wanted to make between 9 and 13. Needless to say we did not finish. Now I will have to finish my daughters with her or while she is in school. Another project to add to the list. And the list is long. I do have 7 gifts made and wrapped. Many more to go, so back to work for me….. Happy crafting or shopping!!!
