Precious Moments Cross Stitch

Today I have finished a cross stitch piece. It took me four nights to finish this one. I got the free chart from Designs by Gloria & Pat, Inc.

almost finished!

This chart is designed for making pillows but I decided to frame it because I want to put it on the wall. I'm going to start another piece tonight.

Homemade Pillowcase

Pillowcases are very simple to make especially the square and rectangle pillowcases. You'll just need a yard of fabric, sewing machine, thread, straight pins and measuring tape and that's it. Any fabric is fine. I added bias tape that matches the background color to define he edges of the fabric. The bias tape I used was the leftover from the Itty Bitty Dress I made yesterday. I bought this fabric months ago and found it in the cabinet today and decided to make something creative out of it and here it goes..

here's the finished product!

I'm gonna buy some new fabric over the weekend and make more pillowcases for my little girl. Hope you can try it out too!

Itty Bitty Dress

Here's my version of the Itty Bitty Dress. I got the free pattern from Rae's blog. I've been trying to make this one last year but yeah I've been extremely busy. I had so much fun sewing this one and my daughter couldn't wait to try it on. It's great! My little girl loves her new dress.
