Pillowcases: Tropical Fish & Bots!

 I made sets of pillowcases for the two grand kids in California.
Kaitlyn likes tropical fish so I found this fabric for her.
 Derby looking up at Julep - he has to be wondering
why she is up there instead of him.
 How cute!
Derby ... always near watching me make the pillowcase.
 My tiny little sliver of a sewing area.  It's amazing
what I can product in such a small space!
 Tropical Fish - The Pair Finished
 Cole is into Bots!
When I asked Sarah what Cole wanted for his birthday last month she
told me Rescue Bots. My question was 
[as you are probably asking the same  thing]
what are Bots?  I didn't have a clue but quickly became
educated when I looked on Amazon.  So when it came to making Cole
 a set of cases of course they had to be Bots - these are Fun Bots.
 Don't you think these are cute?  There are all types of
Bots out there in case you are interested.
For Kaitlyn & her American Girl Doll
I had a tiny strip of tropical fish material left which I couldn't waste.
So I pulled out the Party Dress pattern and when from there.
The blue swirl fabric [originally] was going to be the cuff on the 
tropical fish pillowcase but decided to keep with the fish theme.   
I jazzed up the insert with sea floor fabric I had from another project.
The net glitter was given to me by Deb who purchased a
roll when we went to Hobby Lobby.
All in all these are expensive pillowcases.
Fabric from = $53.00
Shipping to California = $9+
Smiles on 2 grand kids faces = priceless!


  1. Have a serene Sunday and get some of that big easy in today.
    Best wishes Molly
