Pillow Cases for ConKerr Cancer Charity!

Pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer Charity!

My Mama and Sister came over to sew some pillow cases with me today!!  It was such a treat!

 We laughed...mostly at Mama.  She's so funny.  She brightens an entire room by just smiling.  :)

 We sewed 8 pillow cases, well actually I still need to finish mine, but I'm almost done!

 Buka's, my sister, 4 year old granddaughter wanted to know why we were sewing strings!! lol

Anytime spent with Mama and Buka are special, but when you add sewing and FOOD, well then it's a shindig!  

I also made some coaster as mementos from the scraps leftover from our pillowcases. Buka's idea!  :) That smart sister of mine!

Have you heard of ConKerr Cancer Charity ?   You can sew pillowcases and donate them to be given to children fighting cancer.  I'm sure there's a pickup location near you!

I learned to sew pillowcases from Jenny over at Missouri Star Quilt Co.  It's fun and easy!  Give it a try!  Add a few friends and some food and you'll have a sewing good time.  :)  Have  a great week.

*I got it!
*I ironed a crease in mine!
*The story of me sewing at 14 (I'll share that another time!)  But Mama always tells it!  so funny.
*I'm not gonna have yal check mine anymore because yal always find something to fix! lol
*Where's my pillowcase!
*My rotary cutter veered to the right! How'd it do that?
