The sewing corner

Here is a cheap, fast and fun project that takes almost no real sewing "skills". In our home we have colors for our children. This helps them know what is theirs to keep up with and it helps mom know who to tell to pick their towel up off the floor. Today I made the boys pillow cases.

It took me under an hour because there was no cutting and minimal sewing. One yard of broadcloth is all you need. I got it at Wally World for $1.87 a yard. Keep it folded in half and sew up the one open long side and one of the end sides. Turn down the other open end twice over and sew. Turn right side out and your done.

Now I just have to wash them so that they are soft and fresh smelling, for my little men to rest their tired heads tonight.

I tried it again and it worked. Then I got your message saying you fixed it. I did the birth stories for a cyber baby shower at 5 mins for mom. I couldn't choose just one they were all so different.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
