3 Star Wars Pillowcases

I ironed some fabric last week and came across three fabrics that were intended for pillowcases. Feeling the need for some finishes, I sewed them up over the weekend and will send them off to three of the nephews. The YM made it clear he was not particularly interested in these fabrics.

As usual the cuff fabrics were the most difficult to find. I have been working hard to cut pieces out of new fabrics in such a way that I will have a 12″ x WOF or so piece available should I want to use any fabric. I was fortunate to find two different check fabrics that go together, but are different enough to allow the boys to have their own.

The fabric in which the YM is really not interested is the Angry Birds Star Wars fabric. Even when I asked him if his new roommate would like it, I received an unequivocal no.

This is a clear indication of my sometimes uncoolness as a mom. πŸ˜‰

I have 3 young nephews, though young is relative as the youngest is about to be 10 and the two others are 12. They are the youngest of all the cousins and I can still indulge in a little bit of silliness with them.

I know at least two of them will enjoy receiving mail, so I will get those off to them soon.

As a bonus, I got to mark 3 more yards off fabric used on my list.

  1. I suspect the mom-cool-factor migrates up and down the scale in direct proportion to the YM’s desire to separate himself or to run back to the safe and loving parental nest. All part of growing? You might look forward to when he becomes a parent and suddenly you have again become an oracle.

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoy your posts.

    1. Thanks so much for reading and you are absolutely right. My fabric choices aren’t so great right now, but occasionally I get a glimpse of being cool. πŸ˜‰

  2. I like the checks with the Star Wars fabric, looks great. But yeah, it’s tough to keep the cool-mom status going after a certain point. I’m sure the nephews will dig them though.

  3. Back in the ’60s gathers were the thing. I must have made at least five dresses that had yards and yards of fabric in the skirt (especially the Miss America patterns). But I was a whopping 114 pounds, 5’6″, and looked like Liz Taylor, so I could get by with it. Pictures found on Internet by googling “vintage mccalls miss america dress patterns”

    I can’t say that I love gathering but there are gathering feet that make it a whole lot easier if you do a lot of that sort of thing.

    1. I did the Google search and what great dresses! They wouldn’t look good on me, but I still like them. I am not sure how much gathering I will do, but I remember that my grandmother’s machine does have a gathering foot.
