we desperately needed a new fitted sheet for our bed. our other sheet was ripped and didn't fit our bed. every morning we had to put the sheet back on. annoying. so finally, we purchased one through amazon, which actually came from target. we chose a set that was gray jersey and included fitted and flat sheets and 2 king sized pillow cases. we don't ever use the flat sheet, so i was excited to make stuff with it. i have made many, many things so far. here is the first project of many made from the king sized flat sheet. gathered pillows!!! yay!!
i am so not big on measuring. i don't know why it frustrates me. but it does. i put my pillow that was getting new clothes over my straightened sheet and cut to around the right size. i doubled the length for the gathering, and the back is not gathered. the back also opens in the middle, and for that i used the finished sides of the sheet, one less step i had to do!!
i'm almost done with our costumes and will put them up as soon as i am. (hopefully by tomorrow 'cause we have somewhere to be in them!!)
some more good reads for halloween season that are easy and quick reads: the soul screamers series by rachel vincent. i've only read the first one so far, but have high hopes. since it is ya, it is really quick, which i like. another one is called bones of faerie by janni lee simner, i'm not sure if it is a series or not, but hope so. also, wicked by gregory maguire. it was good and not what i expected but this one is NOT a quick read!! but good. happy sewing and reading!!
