    I think he likes it!

    My sister Patti's DGS Mario loves Thomas the Train and about 3 years ago she asked me if I could make him a Thomas pillowcase. No problem as I found some cute Thomas fabric at local WalMart. Fast forward, there's a 2nd DGS, Vincent, who is now 1 1/2 and he also loves Thomas and the brothers fight over the Thomas pillowcase. No problem, Great Aunt May will make another one. Only problem was that after checking out all the local WalMarts the only Thomas fabric I found was a panel to make a soft book. With a little planning a new Thomas pillowcase was on its way to Vincent ASAP. The boy's Mom, Dana, just sent me photos of Vincent and his pillowcase. I really think he likes it! May in Jersey

    Thanks gals. Pillowcases are so easy to make and not expensive like quilts but they bring a ton of enjoyment and fun especially to the little kids. During the past 5 years I have gained 8 grand neices and nephews so you know I've been busy making baby quilts and when they were a little older a pillowcase for each of them.

    I haven't make a pillowcase for my great grandson Jack who will be 1 this weekend. Instead I've been collecting boys and sports fabrics to make him and his dad a lap quilt that they can share while watching TV, taking naps etc. and plan to make them each a matching pillowcase.

    I think he likes it too! I know I do. Always had a soft spot for Thomas.
