    Jeanette--Great job. If your Mom is like my sister she will love the Elvis quilt so much. My sister is such a big Elvis fan--where do find the material??????
    Love the trick or treat bags.

    Oh, I can really appreciate that Elvis quilt, I saw him the first time he ever appeared on TV.....the Ed Sullivan show. Now does that date me or what??? lol lol

    You did a really nice job on that, your Mom is going to be thrilled. Bet she wants to hang it on a wall. Your grands will sure love those bags!

    Those are both terrific!!!! Did you get the Elvis fabric recently? My cousin is also a major Elvis fan - she even got his autograph when she was a teenager, and she still has it (and she managed to hold on to it thru' raising 8 kids!!!) LOL
    Thanks for sharing with us. :D

    yes the fabric is fairly new. cranston village makes the fabric. on their site they have some the fabrics that they have. but their is more patterns. hancocks has an apron and also a tote bag. they now have some of him in military uniform and one with dog tags. you will just have to look around. not all of the walmarts carry all of the elvis patterns. like i said hancocks carries some too and some of theirs is different that i have not found at any of the walmarts. there is xmas elvis also. i think i was loking at one of the link resources and found something different there too.
