    Pillowcases for my DGD

    I don't post very often, but you ladies on this board certainly do inspire me. I am making pillowcases for grands' birthdays. These are for DGD who will be 10 on March 15. She's no longer into butterflies, hearts and pink. Her mom thought this would be great for here. I love how they turned out. Thank you for looking AND all of your inspiration!

    These are perfect for a pre-teen! What girl that age doesn't love purple? And they look much more grown-up for someone that age.

    Pillowcases are great - they're quick, easy and well received. Even my adult daughters still love getting a a mom-made pillow case.

    I'm sure your grannie will hers. Great job with your color selections.

    best,
