Latest Project - Pillowcase

ritaweedaFebruary 20, 2012

The grandkids were here this past weekend and I took a look at the pillowcase I had made for the girl about 4 years ago, pretty sad shape. So I decided to make a new one, just finished it today. I took 2 photos so that you could see the butterfly near the top and the snail near the bottom.

Hope she will like it, but even though the old one is ragged, I know she won't give it up, she sleeps with it every night and always brings it here for the monthly sleepover.

Oh my! That is so adorable and so nice for you to know how much your work is appreciated by your grand daughter.

That's just darling. I think sewing for grandchildren is the most fun of all. Good job.

Rita, that is lovely pillowcase.
I think she will like it.
Isn't it nice to know that she still treasures the old one.
Makes all the work worthwhile.
TFS.

Just the thing to bring on another smile. She will love it but will have a hard time replacing the old one I am sure. It's fun being a Grandma, I speak from a lot of experience.

I love the looping quilted stitches showing the "motion" of the butterflies. You are very creative!
