Katelyn LOVES horses. I searched Joann's, Hancock's, and fabric.com. This was the only really cute fabric that I could find for her pillowcase. I loved the boots, and I thought if you squinted your eyes a little, and stood back, and were just 5 years old, maybe this cute booted animal could pass for a horse. What do you think?
I am afraid that Katelyn won't be fooled, but I hope she likes her new pillowcase, regardless. And I have to admit, I am becoming a believer. The old White serger is sitting in my little sewing closet, taking up space but earning its keep. I zipped this little pillowcase up in NO time. It was SOOO easy and fast. I embroidered her message using the St. Charles font, added extra underlay to it, then pressed and serged. It is actually quite an amazing machine! I have almost finished Katelyn's little skirt, I hope I will get to try it on her soon. The little squares were so easy to get together on the serger. All this from ME, I have to admit, the serger snob. But it has a place in my sewing room to stay!
