Nap Mat and Pillow Case

Jessica's school supply list requires a nap map and a pillowcase to store it in. I haven't quite decided what I will do about the nap mat, but I did make the pillowcase to keep it in. I raided Jessica's pillowcases for one in the way back and here's what I came up with. I made a tube and then tucked everywhere I needed curves to spell out her name. As you can see it's applique. I looked around this morning for applique letters, and somehow this way just seemed more like what I wanted.

The bunny fabric is a stash raid from my mom's stash, which is living here these days (no complains from this lady!) It was originally purchased in Fort Lauderdale to one day become a bunny quilt for me (I selected the fabric). Two daughters later mom made three quilts from that fabric, isn't she great? While I'm unsure as to the whereabouts of my sister's quilts, mine is tucked away safely in the closet. While I am a quilter for use, this quilt has been much used and until it's ready to be to be loved that way some more - my closet it will stay.

It's nice for me to see this little strip put into use once again, and hey as a bonus that tired quilt now has a matching pillowcase.

Aren't memories great? Now Jessica will have memories of her own about the bunny fabric. I hopr today is a better day for you. I am doing better - the steroids are working and calming stuff down.

Why can't my supply list for work include a nap mat and pillowcase?!

Oh man! I think this is too cool! I love that you personalize everything for her.
