My 14 year old daughter likes owls. That may be an understatement. Ellen loves owls. So when she saw this owl fabric at Hobby Lobby, she decided she needed a new pillowcase. I agreed to buy the fabric if she promised to make the pillowcase---I wouldn't do it for her. We ended up buying enough owl fabric for 3 pillowcases, and true to her word, Ellen made all three. She plans on giving away two of the pillowcases to two good friends and keeping the third for herself.
I'm so proud of Ellen! This is the daughter who insists she doesn't like to sew. But I know better. :) She'll be a sew-er yet. (Sorry, I can't bring myself to type 'sewer' when I'm talking about sewing). Not only did Ellen make 3 pillowcases today, but she also sewed these 4 cute little owls out of felt. Did I tell you that Ellen likes owls?
We both should be in bed, but she's still at it in my sewing room. This makes me happy.
