Two New Pillowcases

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Wow, we haven’t had any new posts for a whole month!

I have been working on a project which has to be kept secret from at least one Crackpot, so I’m unable to post any pictures of it.

But I took a break yesterday to make more pillowcases for my two favorite football fans. The first one is Andrew’s, done in regular cotton. I was trying to find a brown or white solid to use for the cuff but just couldn’t find the right brown. Then, I took Andrew with me to look for it at Hobby Lobby, and he insisted that he wanted this turquoise. I tried and tried to convince him that it didn’t match, but that was completely unimportant to him. So, I gave in and let him have the color he wanted. And it did turn out fine, and he loves it.

The second one is Nicholas’, made from a flannel print I found at JoAnn’s. I’m getting quite good at pillowcases now – I think it really does take only the 30 minutes the instructions say it should!
