    Two more pillow cases done! These are a birthday present. I am becoming super fast making these... and that's a good thing because guess what everybody is getting for Xmas this year..? :)

    The only other little project I completed is this cute bookmark.

    2.75'' x 9''

    I designed it in Google Spreadsheet and stitched it up using cross stitching!
    It went together super fast. I then just zig-zagged a couple of times around three sides, slided in a piece of thick paper and then I hand stitched the top close. In this way if it bends, we can just change up the cardboard inside and the bookmark will be like new!! :)
    I really really like that print! I have a fat quarter of it, and I used it to make my boyfriend a credit card wallet, a zipper pouch for his gps and now this. I still have some fabric left for other small projects. Don't you love when everything coordinates? ;)

    1. I've been working on my scrappy quilt top - well do more on it this weekend and maybe I will have it completed by mid week? Then I just have to wait for my backing fabric to start basting

    2. Blame the slowdown on the heat? the beautiful weather? other fun things to do?
      Love your bookmark - thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers
