Happy Monday y’all!!!
Some of you may have noticed that my Etsy shop is looking more like a poor pitiful shop than an actual clothing store. OH WELL!!! I’m having such a great time getting my house in order that I don’t even miss creating new dresses…yet.
This weekend, I began the process of transforming my son’s room into something noteworthy. In our last home, we kept adding kids so the rooms never quite became anything worth anything. A quote from the first realtor to visit our old home and tour the kids’ room: “Oh my. Hmmmm. This will have to change.”
Well – I am now determined for that to change!!! Owen’s room is slated to have matching bedding, a curtained reading nook, curtains for his closet, and actually worthwhile things on his walls. (not that last time he had mis-matched girlie things on his wall, right!? cough cough)
Above is what I finished this weekend…. AAAAAHHH… it was SO fun!! My son is only 7 years old so I wasn’t expecting much of a reaction to something as useless to him as fabric on his bed. WRONG!!! I was downstairs when he first saw it… I heard something that sounded like Super Bowl screaming coming from his room. Then I heard, “MOOOOOM!!! This is the Best Day Ever!!” Be. Still. My. Heart! SEW worth it, right!?!
This has brought me such joy, I thought I’d spend the next few blog posts sharing with you how I upped the wow factor in his room. I’ll share tutorials on easy pillowcases, easy coverlets, and easy fabric curtain panels. I’m hoping that some of you will find these helpful!
Let’s start with the pillowcase… mostly because it’s fewer photos and that’s all I had time to download today. (Apparently, the kids’ school thinks they need to be wearing “official” uniforms and not chevron fabric, so laundry has to be done. UGH!)
There you have it y’all… how to make a very fast and easy pillow case!
Time: I think this took me 15 minutes…and that was with taking pictures. You CAN DO THIS!!!
Cost: pretty darn cheap. I used leftover fabric from the coverlet … but lets’ see… I think I used about 1/2 yard of fabric, so for me – $3.50. YAAAAAAY!
I hope you’ll make a million of these. Be sure to invite someone over to spend the night just so you can offer them a brand spanking new pillowcase!
