Pink Pillowcase

Last year Jessica (SunnyStitching) and I made a quilt for Evangelyn's new bed.  We used pieces of fabric from clothes we had sewed for her and also some clothes that were her favorites.  The quilt was so beautiful and cheerful when finished.  Click here to see Jessica's post about will love her fabulous blog.  I have included a picture of it below.

Several months later I used the left over scraps to make a fun "Pig Pillow" for her bed, and also made a "Pig Pillow" for her brother Canaan using scrap fabric from clothes we had made for him.  Evie still did not have a cute pillowcase so I then decided to make her one and used still remaining fabric from the pig. Here is a picture of the pigs showing the patchwork.

I found a great pattern online.  From the pattern choices for the pillowcase, i chose the basic pattern.  Then I purchased some soft cotton fabric, pink with white polka dots at JoAnn's Fabric store for the body of the pillowcase,  and started cutting and sewing.  I used the patchwork fabric leftover from the pig for the band of the pillowcase. So, the pillowcase will be shipped this week, along with the cargo pants I made for Canaan.   I think Evie will really love it.

To our precious Evie......sleep tight. 
Love, Nanny and Papa
