Add some fabric, embroidery or applique to an ordinary pillowcase.

  • Check out this post by Hearthandmade for an easy tutorial on how to sew a pillowcase.
  • Embroider or Applique your grandkids' name onto it and send this darling pillowcase to the creche.  What a great way for your little one to see his/her name and to learn to recognize it.  
  • When you embroider or applique the name on the pillowcase, ensure that it is close to the side, so it won't scratch soft cheeks! 
  • With a cutting machine, like a Silhouette or Cricut, you can cut names out, iron the letters onto the fabric and secure it with hand stitches.  
  • Never limit yourself to a picture, don't look at it and think... I can not do this - think...I don't know what the heck I am doing, but I am going to nail this one!

Let met let you in on a little secret - I can sew, but it is not my preferred craft.  I'd rather embroider, knit or crochet something.  But...if I do get messy in my craft room, it is like a total explosion of ideas.  Then I enjoy sewing.

As I was scrolling down this post, some magic started happening.  That confidence that I can make this sweet sleeping bag.
