I sewed a few things for the kids this weekend. Last time I was at the fabric store, the kids were with me and of course, being my kids, they wanted fabric. I let them pick out some. Littlest K picked out the fox fabric from this previously blogged about top. Middle K, still in his wolf/dog stage, picked out some cute paw print fabric and requested a pillow case. That’s the deal, if I let them choose the fabric, they have to have something in mind to have made. We can’t have them buying fabric all willy nilly and stuff, that’s how you end up with stash problems. Oh wait.
I changed the pattern a bit and used a solid bottom with a buttoned top bodice. I actually used the back piece, but didn’t do the cut out part. I did not want to do all those button holes again. I really, really like how the two-toned front came out!
Middle K’s Pillow case. A super easy pattern, I learned from his sewing teacher in first grade.
There are no exposed seams! I’ve assisted in many kids sewing these, but I hadn’t sewn one myself. I really love how it looks so nice, even though a first grader could have sewn it. In class, they appliqued their name on the wide band. I am planning on making a few more of these when we redecorate the kids’ bedrooms in the fall. I might do something fun with the band.
I think he approves.
I still have so many things on my summer sewing list! Good thing it’s only week two.
