Adlyn must have sensitive skin. She thinks that her cotton pillow case is scratchy, and she prefers to wrap her pillow with her ultra soft and fuzzy blanket. This weekend, I enjoyed a trip to my favorite fabric store, A Little Country Character, in Green River. What a great store! Adlyn came with us and picked out her minky fabric so I could make her a pillow case. She picked a circular pattern filled with the colors white, black, pink, and lime green. Brooks selected a lime green minky with bulldozers on it. It was a cute print. With the help of Grandma, we completed our sewing project that evening, and the kids have enjoyed their pillows ever since!
At the fabric store, we noticed a showcased project, Hot Frogs. I can't wait to get the pattern to make some for the kids. They were these really neat minky frogs filled with rice. It could double as a stuffed animal and also a heating pad that can be placed in the microwave. They were adorable! I'm looking forward to working on this project with Grandma in the near future. (Did I mention the kids thought the frogs were cute? They enjoyed playing with the sample frog while we browsed the store.)
