Ninjago Pillow Case
this idea on Pinterest this week and knew I needed to make it. This morning the boy woke up with a cold and this was just the ticket to cheer him up. I basically winged it, using an existing pillowcase as a guide. Then inspiration struck and I cut up the template pillowcase to use for the face. It was a hideous yellow/orange and worked perfectly for the Lego skin color. The eyes are felt and everything was sewn on with a satin stitch. The pillowcase itself is some hideously cheap flannel I had ordered and never used because...well...it is terrible. Why is flannel so hit or miss? But I digress. This project took me under an hour, and that was with about seventeen 'Hey, Mom! Come see this!' and 'Mom, do you know where my toy/shirt/hippopotamus is?' interruptions.
