A little sewing project

We have had an issue with our Body Pillow cases, one of the zippers broke and also cased a scratch with the tab, not only uncomfortable but annoying, after looking at 4 different stores for replacement case and only finding micro fiber non absorbent cases (if you sleep with you you want microfiber???? I think Not!
So discussion ensued and bedding departments browsed and realize that two bath towels would be the perfect length to use for a pillow case so we purchased a green and a green stripped towel and I stitched up three sides (long sides and one short side) and it was perfect - it is a loose fit but the towels are soft and the pillows stay put .... and no zippers to deal with!!!  after about a week decided to make another for the other pillow used the same towels just in Blue (the green ones were the last two left )

You can see the back with the solid towel in the view below

Another Birthday card

I was just told by Katy (6) that her teachers Birthday is tomorrow so we had to make her a card, and I also let her make her own layout using cuts and embossing....

Just a note - Katy drew the faces on the monkeys herself with a pretty purple gel pen.... she also told me where  to put the stickles on the card above. (I inked the embossing so it would show up) Card is embossed with Cuttlebug folder Bloomdots, and the embossed square is birds and swirls...
