'Monogrammed' Pillowcase

I've mentioned here before that this year I'm making pillowcases as Christmas gifts. Well, the completed count is at a grand total of 2. I just finished the one above yesterday. I wanted to personalise it, but I calmed down a little from my previous and too fancy design and I still ended up with something I'm really happy with.
It's 'monogrammed' as you can see. I asked my son what the 'M' might stand for and he said Mommy ;-) ... the actual 'M' who this pillowcase is going to is my niece Molly.

Music is a big part of my brother's (Molly's Dad) life, so I thought this fabric would be just perfect. It's an older out-of-print Alexander Henry fabric. The pink fabric is a Moda fabric called Love. The turquoise dots are Sherri Berry.

And the letter is from this panel from the out-of-print Peas and Carrots line by American Jane for Moda. I was fortunate to pick this up recently at a local flea market when a lady was having a fabric sale.
I'm participating in Fabric Tuesday. Just click here if you'd like to see lots more lovely items made from fabric by other bloggers!
Thanks for stopping by!

M for Marvelous would be an appropriate description of this pillow case. Sweet for sweet little Molly.

Molly's grandmother. I hope to do three Christmas pillowcases today but right now I am leaving to pick up my quilt! yippee!!!!!

What a coup to get that panel of letters - there is so much you can do with that! Exhibit A - that fantastic pillow case! (my name begins with E and my birthday is in September, in case you were wondering...)

That's a neat looking pillowcase. I love that fabric. Lucky find on the letters and neat idea to monogram them. I've made 5 pillowcases so far and have 3 more to go...better get busy!
