Cute Stuff


My grandma gave me some embroidered pillowcases just after Jeremy and I were married. Not wanting to ruin them I never used them. So they have been sitting in our linen closet for over 8 years.

Cute, right?
Last week Jeremy's mom, Carol-Lynn, told me they were making pillowcase dresses for their Super Saturday. She asked if I would like some for the girls.
And the lightbulb went off!
And the final product is even better than I imagined!
Love it.

These are the cutest!! I am also very much a type of person who keeps things to "maybe use them someday" or "they are just to pretty to actually use now"

I have hand towels that have been sitting in my cupboard for 4 years.

I should use them...:)

That is a great idea for using pillow cases that are special to you. I've never seen that before. I love it!

debsters said...

That is fantastic. I love the pink and white. I need a little girl, I'm pretty sure my girls couldn't get into a pillowcase.

Jan said...

Those are so sweet Heather. Is there anything you can't do?

Heather said...

I didn't do anything for these dresses but supply the pillowcases. Carol-Lynn get's all the credit for how cute these turned out.
