|Dress A Girl Around The World ~ Sew*A*Long|
So I didn't actually use a pillowcase for this one. It's more of a gauze fabric which will be so nice and breezy in summer time. I think a pillowcase in this fabric wouldn't be so comfy. It takes about a yard of fabric for most standard pillowcases and I have lots of cute fabrics in one yard increments that will be put to great use. I may use the pre-packaged seam binding instead of making my own, as I did in the first one. I can see myself getting all crazy with pockets or coordinating panels ~ which sometimes backfires for me and makes my project take much longer than it should. Lets see if I can stay focused between hospital trips & whatever else pops up the rest of this week. I don't know if I should set a goal of 10 or 20...
I was also able to finish an apron for my Etsy shop. I like the fabric a lot, it looks like I should have made an apron out of it! The background is brown with little dots and it's covered with fruits & flowers. I had to use rick-rack on the pockets. It just seemed appropriate. Check it out:

Update: Hubby is doing okay. They are having huge difficulties with his stubborn clots. We thought he'd be moved to the regular floor today but he's still too critical so will stay in ICU a little longer. I also found out he may have developed an infection & was started on an antibiotic. Hope to have better news tomorrow.
Until next time,
