Pillow Cases

Nicole and I went to Rosie's Calico Cupboard, the most amazing fabric store in San Diego! I spent a little more than my budget allowed, but I'll keep myself busy for a long time with all my new supplies. We went there to find a fabric to make Nicole's curtains out of. We found one she liked, but when we went to the window, the fabric looked too yellow. We had a lot of it, so we decided to make some pillowcases for her bedroom instead. We picked up a few 99 cent pillows at Ikea and went to work.

We measured and pinned.

We did a little ironing.

Nicole really wanted to do the actual sewing part, so here she is stiching away with my husky.

And here they are on her bed. It only took a few minutes!

Here is some of the fabric I bought at Rosie's:
