only something this cute could keep me out of the kitchen

Recently I made the mistake of entering a bookstore. Remind me not to do that again. I was beside myself with excitement. Books, kits, stationary, all in an aroma of coffee and treats. Plus, I had a gift card burning a hole in my husband's pocket.

Then I heard this sweet book whispering my name from the clearance table.

And how could I resist?

So, the sewing table has been monopolizing my time, energy, and creativity for the last week or two. Which explains why we're having quesadillas for dinner tonight.

But check out what a pillowcase plus some rickrack or the remnant of some recently hemmed curtains can become.

Don't worry. I won't make my daughters wear pillowcases the whole summer. I hope to sell most of these at my church's craft sale and use the cash to bless a single mom and her family at Christmas next year. 'Cuz, honestly, who has time to craft around Christmastime? And we want to do some serious blessing.

And never fear. There is a super fun option for boys.

Did I mention this cape is reversible?


  1. These are so adorable! I am very impressed. You also found some pretty cute pillowcases to work with!

  2. Keri, I made a similar cape for Reed for Christmas. He loved it! Your's is very cool.
