Two More for the Linen Closet

Two more pillowcases for the linen closet.  The kids handpicked these fabrics at fabricworm.  I will try just about anything to keep them in their beds all night.  Now they both have a special Mama made pillow.  These have already been flopped on and tossed around by the kids today.  Hmm, I think this is the last time these pillowcases will be ironed.  I'm looking forward to them getting used and loved.

I overheard my son whispering to my daughter, "these are ours and we can switch them whenever we want."

If I make them again, I'm picking a scatter print fabric.  The sideways trees and stop signs are bothering me a little bit.  I really like the stripes and dots for the accents.  Some of you mentioned these would make great gifts.  I totally agree!  Is anyone else starting to think of holiday gift ideas?



  1. i made several one year and used them to wrap christmas gifts in...then you got two gifts, and did not waste paper.

  2. Yes! I can not believe Christmas is only 4 months away! Love the pillow cases!

  3. Super cute!! I love how they each have "their own". :o)
    Oh yes, I am totally thinking Christmas. One of my quilts I am working on will be a present for my Aunt. I have never made one so large, so it is a first for me.

    Do you have ideas for Christmas sewing?
