Okay...since this is a quilting blog, I'll show you what I've been up to sewing-wise. Em has one of these for school
They are used for naptime, but we live in Florida where it's in the 90's - 100's through September. Even in the air conditioning, it's too hot to lay on one of these mats. Last year I made a quilted mat cover, but it was too heavy and bulky so we wound up sending crib sheets to school. I wanted to make a couple of lightweight covers that would stay on better than the crib sheets, and so yesterday I had an idea....pillowcases, really big pillowcases. I used the easy, schmeasy pillowcase construction method, so they were whipped up in a jiffy. It was great to use up a bunch of fabric too - these were fabrics that I had bought, but then couldn't figure out how to work them into a project. Problem solved!
I'm taking the little princess for her back-to-school haircut, to buy school shoes, and to her school to drop off her supplies Monday. School starts next week!!!
Have a fantastic weekend!
