    My daughter with the 4 boys wanted Boston Red Sox comforters for 3 of them. I could not find matching sheets in twin size, so I bought navy sheets and bought baseball material and sewed it in the hems of the sheets and pillowcases. What do you think?

    :) Way to go,beachlady! I used that same print to make our baseball fan son a tissue box cover. Pillowcases are great.

    They are gorgeous! I bet you saved the hems in those sheets, too. Do you ever have the hem thread break after so many washings?

    I bet those grands are going to be thrilled!

    Hugs,
