A new tradition

I have come to the end of the Big Sewing List. Actually "end" is a bit misleading. Its more a case of what is made is made (and what is not, now had a retail substitute). The last project was to sew some Christmas pillowcases for Argy and Bargy.

The colours are a bit of a visual assault and the fabric is perhaps a little short on the thread count. However, I don't think any of this will matter. I have promised the boys that the night they have the special pillowcases is the night that Father Christmas will be visiting.

Woohoo! Christmas bed linen is in place. Its all systems go. Bring on the portly man in red.

If Argy and Bargy have trouble sleeping tonight, I suspect it won't be entirely attributable to the loud print on their pillowcases ...


  1. Ho ho ho, it is rather loud!
    What a sweet mummy to make christmas pillowcases for the very special night tonight.

  2. What a great idea! I'm soooo going to make one for Moo for next Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and your family and here's to a blogmeet in the new year!

  3. Next year - PILLOW CASES!! Excellent idea. Hope your beautiful boys have a great day - with the packaging.

  4. Wow, that's all-singing fabric! Happy day to you and yours.
