Abracadabra...


I picked this nightgown up at church basement sale this weekend thinking that the fabric went really well in my guest room.

I was right! Two pillowcases with an already made ruffle. Who could ask for more? Actually there wasn't enough material for both front and back, so I used a really soft white cordorouy from my stash for the back of the cases. I know that pillow cases are not at all a hard sewing project but I am very tickled with myself anyway.

I had a touch of the stomach flu and a nasty cold last week, so stayed home from work on Friday and finished my second Halloween pillow. This one is making its way to Brittany to grace her couch.

I hope you're all better! I love to make pillowcases! That way I can get fabrics I love, but not have to buy a ton of them. The Halloween pillow is just great!! I love Halloween stuff!

Sorry you have been down with the stomach bug...you are so creative! What a darling idea for an old nightgown and it looks so cute on the bed. Love the Halloween pillow too!

How charming and creative :-) I love it.

Aren't you clever! The pillow cases are a lot cuter than the gown was! And very smart to use the corduroy remnants for the backing. You're right. They work perfectly in that room.

Hi Rainy, I found your blog via Jackie's (Wren's Nest) tea towel swap (on her swap's flickr page... you're right next to me).

I love your new pillowcases... and I love your town ;-) ... I say that becauseI think we might be neighbors!!! I don't want to be too public about our locations... but I think I am only a few blocks from you (by looking at your photos). WHAT A SMALL WORLD! You might even be so close that you might be able to hear my chickens clucking in the morning! [[sorry, gulp]] - Monica
