It's Friday and I'm Sewing

Getting a few doo-dads done..

Daughter asked for a pillowcase for this mini pillow. This is my first experiment. I'll make another one soon, so she'll have options. Here are the two sides:

Ann from Sunshine and Quilts Beyond Borders asked me to test her pattern to see if I think it's easy for a beginner. YES! And it was fun to make something from a kit where all the pieces were already cut. That sure makes the sewing go faster!

At Sunshine we started a new idea of making "stringy thingys" for members or family members who are struggling and need a cheerful little get-well flag. I collect the pieces, and I have made three so far. (I learn something new each time I make one.) One person was in a bad car accident, one is a newborn baby with some life and death struggles, and one person has cancer. I hope these help cheer them in a small way.

Looks like you had fun! The "stringy-thingys" are a great idea!

I love what you are doing with all of the stringy things!
