    These are for my daughter. It was a Christmas plan, but I made them this weekend because she had a frustrating week at college and she asked if her dad and I would visit her this coming Saturday. :D I thought they'd cheer her up, although she's fine now. We're going to check out some stores she loves, go out to eat, and go hiking.

    Every free evening I sew bindings on stuff I made this summer to get ready for the craft sale. Ugh! So it was refreshing to make something start to finish! :lol:

    Those are cute!!
    I'm sure they did cheer her up more even with Mom and Dad. Funny how our kids still need us when they aren't home, huh? But glad she's feeling better. :)

    I bought some cute kids fabric I'm going to make some pillow cases out of and see if they'll sell at the craft fair. I'm going to get them done, hopefully after I finish this quilt top I'm doing.

    What cute pillowcases!! The fact that you are delivering them in person will make them even better. I know how those visit lift the spirits. Sounds like a fun day

    Thanks. Rachel has really gotten into camping this year--and she loves stuff that looks outdoorsy and woodsy. I told her I didn't want to scare her, but she's becoming more like her mother on a daily basis. :wink: She's asking for Thoreau's Walden for Christmas; we have two copies here because it was one of my favorite reads in college. Next she'll want Leaves of Grass. :D

    Nice pillow cases Karla. They are so fun to make. It's a neat pattern. When we were in Yuma at the RV Park the sewing ladies were making them as fast as they could for Cristmas presents for G-kids. I made 28 of them myself. Good job!!

    What awesome fabric! I love that pillowcase pattern, too. It's easy, and you always get great results!

    And somehow I can't help but believe that if your daughter turns out to be just like you, that's a pretty darned good deal!

    Those are so cute! I've been making some for my grandkids for Christmas so they would have their own "special" pillowcase :wink:

    Oh, WOW!!! Just gorgeous! That gives me an idea. I could make some for Jim for Christmas. With money so tight, it will add a little to what will be under the tree.

    How special those will be to your daughter. I so remember the phone calls from my own daughters. Now they are both married and I still get an occasional phone call but not like college.

    I know that the pillowcase pattern has been posted before. I would like to make them but I don't have the pattern. Would you post it again?

    Thank you.

    Here you go, Carol: http://www.sewing-pillows.web77.org/index.html

    Bev--the fabric says Black Bear Mountain #6495--but it's cut off there so I don't know if there are more numbers. I only have a small piece left. I bought it at a huge craft fair called The Windmill this summer--it was only $5 a yard.

    Aww--thanks for your sweet comments. :oops:

    There's some on ebay!

    I just bought way too much stuff from this seller--yikes. But it was so easy--and oh so fun. :wink: It'll all be for pillowcases for gifts and to sell.

    She has more black bear fabric!!

    Those are niceand I wouldn't mind having some. What a great thing to make to get rid of fabric you have no clue on what to do with, which I have a lot of that.

    I LOVE 'em. I hope they sell for you.

    Our first craft fair (Autumn Fair) is coming up in two weeks. I'm so behind!
