Does everyone know about Wild Kingdom? My dad watched that every week. Now, I'm kind of old. Way back then, we had one tv and four channels. Television was pretty boring and there was nothing worse than having my dad watch Wild Kingdom AND Lawrence Welk. I didn't give him any crap about it. He worked hard during the week. Anyway, this pillowcase takes us to the savannah. I have three different fabrics and prints.
I had some the silky leopard fabric in my sewing room. My niece Ashton is spending the summer with us. She came into my sewing room and commented that she wanted a pillowcase out of the fabric. Lucky for her, I bought plenty. I actually bought it to make a little pajama set for her little sister.
I can't say this was fun. It went together quick. But your probably shouldn't use stretchy, silky fabric for a pillowcase. If you're up for the challenge, just make sure you have plenty of pins to keep it stable.

A year or two ago, one of the gals over at Sew Forum made this delightful little Minnie Mouse dress. I loved what she did and I totally copied it! My girls are all grown and I can't say that I'm around little ones too much so I copied her dress since I have no idea what Minnie wears anymore. I used my favorite pattern, Claire, from Portobellapixie. The red and white polka dot fabric came from Joann's and the white and black fabric are Kona cotton. I hope Kayla love this dress as much as I do. I'll be going to visit her soon, so I'm hoping she'll model this for me.
Now, what other party am I late for?
The May pillowcase fabric came from Hancock's. The font is Summer Time from 8 Claws and a Paw.
The fabric for the 4th of July pillowcase is from the M'Liss Celebrate USA collection. Kayla name was made with two different fonts. The large letter K is from Embroidery Library and her name is made with the Santa's Sleigh font from Jolson's Designs.
