Do you shop at Walmart? If so, when was the last time you checked out their fabric selection? I was walking past their fabric aisle the other day on my way to get groceries, and this adorable fabric by Waverly caught my eye! I love the Paris street scenes. Don't you?
My friend had asked me to make a Valentine pillowcase for her daughter who is on a church mission, and I just knew this fabric would be perfect. I combined it with a little pink geometric pattern and a red and white polka dot cuff (both from Walmart). My mom gave me the pillowcase directions at Christmas, but I had a hard time following the instructions without pictures. We ended up having to Skype so she could show me how to do it! Since then, I found that there are many similar tutorials on Pinterest....Of course there are! See here and here. It was a very simple, fast project once I knew what I was doing.
They have the same print in different dye lots. But, the only other one I liked was this one. In fact, I love this one!
So, I made a couple more...one to give to Grace on her birthday (since she loves all things French) and another to gift. I think it only cost about $4.00 in fabric, and took 20 or so minutes to make.
I've been reading Brene Brown's book again...The Gifts of Imperfection. I just love her and her research. If you are in need of a little self love, (or a lot), I highly recommend her books.
