On a lighter note, this article also gave me the idea to make special pillowcases for my children for different occasions. I am thinking that I can have a few options of extra pillowcases for when they get sick for them to choose from to add a small amount of cheer to an otherwise unpleasant experience. I also had the thought of making special pillowcases for going to the cottage, camping, traveling, etc. The first ones I chose to make were for our last weekend at the cottage for the season.
Directions for making pillowcases can be found at the these links: ConKerr Cancer under "Help Out" or at the blog MADE!
This is my son's pillow at the cottage. Both of my children were so excited to have the special pillows! My daughter walked around with it and layed down everywhere pretending to sleep!
I found the cutest "vintage looking" cowboy fabric for him and cowgirl fabric for her.
Here are both the cowboy and cowgirl pillowcases with matching red horseshoe fabric on the edges.
I love the true vintage curtains in the back that my husband's Grandmother made years ago for the cottage.
I just had to add this picture of my son holding one of the many bugs that he found. It's a good thing he got such a great night's sleep on his special pillow to give him more energy for exploring!
