Back to my sewing machine.

I finally got around to making pillow cases for the pillows I bought at IKEA in March. I used the great IKEA fabric Alexis had sent me for my birthday along with some Kona black.
I love the colors and patterns. I was able to "fussy cut" most of them so that I could use a different part of the pattern for each pillow.

This is the only one I was unsure about, but I think it turned out very cool and modern.
I love them because they will make partying on the porch a little more comfortable (Hilary!!) and the fabric makes me think of Alexis and the pillows remind me of Gabriella. Surrounded by my girls, in spirit.
They even match the daylilies in bloom right now! This afternoon we will be welcoming Sara and Leo for a few days stay. Looking forward to making new memories on the front porch!
