Soooo . .. I can sew!


Pin-It  Do-It October 

   
What a surprise!  
After my last post about the Devil Machine I wasn't sure I would be sharing my first Pin-It/Do-It challenge for all to see.  I'm happy to say that I am loving these Hot Dog pillowcases!  I actually made a variation from the original Pin that I found, but a co-worker gave me these simple directions
to making the darling pillowcases that I had in mind.  Choosing bright colors and patterns, I made one trial pillow case for myself and then finished one of three that I will take to Texas next weekend for granddaughters!  

It's now day #2 with the Pin-It Do-It project.  

The last two pillowcases are done - in between helping husband build fence - and I was left wishing I had more fabric - is it possible that everyone I know will get a pillow case now??  It was great fun and I know the granddaughters will love them!



Got the original idea from http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-conkerr-cancer-pillowcases.html

  3. Thank you - something about a cozy flannel pillowcase for the cold winter months to come. I picture my grandkids in front of the TV with them.
