I just spent a lovely week away with family, so I've been away from the blog and the sewing machine. Here's a quick share. I made these 12" by 16" pillows for The Boy and my niece and nephew as Hanukkah presents a couple years ago. (I guess it's about time I make one for The Girl.) It all started when I saw the kit for the Pack 'n Pillow Pattern by It's Sew Emma at Fat Quarter Shop. I just knew my niece would love the pink castle fabric. I did a little shopping (with The Boy's help) to pick out the car fabric for nephew. And, naturally, I raided my Very Hungry Caterpillar scraps to make the pillowcase for The Boy. I added the 1" strip of fabric so I could sneak in an additional fabric, and I fussy cut the foods fabric so we could see them all along the edge of the pillowcase.
I'm linking up with Lorna at Let's Bee Social.

Kind of nice to take a break. That's what summer is all about. The pillow are really adorable. Especially the Hungry Caterpillar -- love the fussy cutting. I have great memories of reading that book to my kids. My sister had an in home daycare for many years and I can remember her having Hungry Caterpillar parties with her kiddos and they would get to try all of those foods.
It's such a great classic story. And I LOVE the fabric. I've done a number of projects using it.
These are some fun looking pillow cases, Sarah. Each of them are sew cute! Yes, you better look through your stash and get one made for your girl. A nice little project for the busy summer.
There are SO many nice little projects this summer. :-) I think I want to finish her quilt first, but you're right, I could totally get the pillowcase done in a flash!
