    Another item made for local fair. Each fabric has a book to go along with the theme. Packaged in 2 gal. size Ziploc bags. These were popular last year - promoted as great gifts for grandkids. Sold for $12.00 which I feel is a bargain.


    Books in 'new like' condition (got at Goodwill for $.50 - $3.99) I love books so hunting through out the year is a fun pasttime for me. LOL
    Most fabrics were under $4.99/yd. with sales, coupons etc.

    What an excellent idea to put a book with the pillowcase! Do you do a pair of pillowcases or just one with the book? I tried selling pillowcases at the craft shows but didn't have much luck. I had mine priced at $16.00 pair. I didn't think that was too much.

    Me, too... I am even planning a set of pillow cases for my sister to match a rose wreath quilt my Mom made her. Adding a book to read sounds like a great idea for her as well :thumbup:
