Not just an ordinary pillow case....
I have been noticing these pillow case dresses everywhere for the past several months. My love for sewing can be a curse! Every time I run across a new project idea I will not rest until I've attempted to duplicate it...sometimes several times!
Thus begins this latest... not just an ordinary pillow case project!
My sister and I were at a local book store one night and she picked up this really cute project book. We stood and looked through it...drooling over all the neat things you could do with a pillow case. Neither of us bought the book that night...and once again I do not rest! So,what do I do? You guessed it! I went back a week later and frantically looked for that book. What a relief when I finally found it...so I bought two! Now the wheels are set in motion and my creative bug has kicked in.
My sister and I made plans to meet on Wednesday and sew dresses for the girls...we do not lack for girls in our family! Kathy brought moms machine and I had mine, so we set out to create 5 matching dresses. I really enjoyed the day hanging with my sister and all the kiddos. For the last 10 years she and her husband have lived out of state...so sister time has been few and far between. They are preparing to move to Honduras soon and these sister times will soon come to an end. Hopefully having matching dresses will help to make a memory for the girls as they get reacquainted only to say goodbye for few years.
Keep checking back...you never know what project I may attempt next!
I will try and post pictures of the girls in their dresses later...now that I'm finished with all mine.
