Our sweet-pea of a daughter became engaged to a lovely young man on March 9. Her fiance invited us to the after-event to surprise her. She had no idea all the plans he made to bring this about! Bobby graciously talked with my husband, her dad, to ask his "permission" to marry her a couple of weeks before the party at his parents' home.
So this called for something handmade, don't you think? I decided that I could do pillowcases in a week's time. It took a week to think about, plan, purchase more fabric :-), print a photo on fabric for the first time!, and then fit it all together. We're all on nice, happy new adventures!
I started with this lovely photo.
I printed it onto fabric prepared for inkjet printing.
And here are the results! Each gets their own pillowcase, to dream about one another, and when they come together in marriage, they have a set.
Now I may have to come up with a very special quilt. I have until late December, apparently.
I'm linking with "WIP Wednesday" with Lee at FreshlyPieced, and "Let's Bee Social" with Lorna at SewFreshQuilts.
