Sewing Project One- Check!



I have decided to (temporarily) put down the paint brush and pick up the sewing machine, metaphorically speaking of course (sewing machines are quite heavy).  I have a few sewing projects that are begging to get finished. This was one of them.  For some reason I saw this flannel train fabric and had to have it for Avery. He LOVES trains.  As a matter of fact I sing the Thomas the Tank Engine song for him about 20 times a day. It is forever stuck in my head. I need help! But that is whole other problem. Anyway, I decided to make him a pillow case. It is super soft and I think he will really like it. Maybe it will help him go to sleep faster. Tonight he realized for the first time that if you jump in your bed it is bouncy and fun! Maybe this pillow will help. Then again maybe not, but at least its cute.

How cute! I love to sew. Pillowcases are so much fun cause they are easy and cute and add so much. Boys and trains...it is crazy! I will cross my fingerst that this helps him sleep. :)

Awww, good job Autumn. I love it. I like to keep spunky pillow cases on my kids bed at all times. Josh has a bunch of retro cowboy ones, and Ben's collection has everything from aliens to bunnies, to love bugs. ;)

Cute! Sounds like you caught the same sewing bug that I have!! I love sewing until the end of the project and you can't seem to ever finish the stupid thing! Trains are so cute. I am really into retro robots and I hope Rad eventually catches on;) Miss you!
