Now Panic and Freak Out

I completed a couple of quick projects on Friday evening and yesterday. The first was a simple pillow case for an old friend. I've had this pillow forever and it was time to make a new, snuggly pillowcase for it – it's always been clothed in flannel. I used a piece of gorgeous floral flannel from Bonny and Camille's Ruby collection. I think this is my favourite fabric out of the entire collection. No complicated sewing involved once I'd worked out the measurements – I did use French seams which have turned out beautifully.


After I'd made the pillow case I started on a quick cross stitch for Catherine whose current favourite post exam saying is "Now Panci and Freak Out"! While we were away on our little Winnie break she bought a mug with the words on and we spotted this cross stitch pattern while perusing Etsy one evening. Luckily I had this blue linen in my stash and some variegated Anchor floss (1302 I think but not 100% sure) looked just right against it.


Next up is to start the huge pillow out the Fat Quarterly book – my ginormous insert arrived yesterday morning, it really is ginormous!

    Pretty fabric on the pillowcase and the Cross Stitch looks great. Love that variegated thread. It goes beautifully against the blue linen 🙂
