Crafty Day

We did crafty day with my sister and neice ~ and my nephews completed their school assignments.  Moms dining room turned into sewing room central ~ lots of fabric cutting, sorting, pinning & sewing~

Here are some pictures of our accomplishments ~ more easy pillowcases!

Brenda & Bethany's pillowcases

love this goofy 8 year old!
I did discover one thing while making these pillowcases ~ if you want your fabric to face the opening where the pillow goes in turn it upside down before you roll it up.  Amy's owl case was upside down but she was ok with that.  Now we know!

And on a side note ~ homeschooling memories came flooding back yesterday while Ben & Bobby were working on lessons.....lets just say ~ I am glad to be on this side of that journey!

Happy Crafting!
