    Cool One likes purple, one likes blue

    These pillowcases are for former 5th grade students who just graduated. What do you give the teen who has everything and is headed for Cornell? A custom pillowcase, of course! The girls are twins--and I only had one, but the other was right next door and it feels like I had her too. ;-)

    I was invited to several grad parties of former student this year, but I have to admit, entering a party with lots of kids-most of whom I don't know--and 99% of people I don't know--is out of my comfort zone. So, a friend gave me this idea and I thought it was perfect. They are camp counselors in VT for the summer, so I'm sending them there.

    Both are very attractive. I make several pairs of those pillowcases a year. Fun and easy to do.

    Thanks for such kind replies. :-) The pillowcases were mailed yesterday, so I'll wait to see what they think.

    Love the colors so vibrant, who would have thought that the boring pillowcases that we had years ago would have turned into these beauties?

    They are so exquisite, love the fabrics, so rich and regal-looking. I'm guessing you'll have a lot of inquiries from the kids they are counseling!
