Fun pillowcases!

Tube pillowcases

This weeks little project (not forgetting the mound of repairs Im chugging through…) is sweet pillowcases for the kids. Fun for the kids to pick out which fabric they wanted, and a great easy way to make something that they will cherish.

While browsing youtube one night, I came across a great video on how to make pillowcases using quilt fabric. It stuck with me, and I knew inevitably that I would make some.

This is the video.

Both pillowcases were done in fabric I had been given, so only cost me the thread and my time. But of course, the beautiful green fabric on the pillowcase above had a nice funky smell to go with the vintage, so that earnt itself a good wash!

And heres a close up of each of the fabric combos (I got a new camera, can you tell??!)

All in all, a fun project 🙂


Been making some cards…

This blog post is well overdue, and apologies for that!

Life got in the way of crafting and posting for a while there, and so the only thing I had done was some fun cardmaking at my MILs. Ive starting creating more recently and hopefully there will be some blog posts to follow 🙂

For now, here are some of the cards I had fun making…

Apologies for the poor camera quality. All the cards (except the ‘Liam’ one) are white.. if only the camera knew that!

Baby girl clothes card.

This sweet little card went to a friend who had a beautiful baby girl, and unexpectedly early, so glad I had it done!
