I used to tell everyone that I loved everything beginning with the letter B. Bikes, Bears, Bagels, Bananas (oh, bananas. . . ), Boys, etc. . . I realized that while I will always like these things, I’m ready for a new letter to tell my friends about (who, obviously, are always more than excited to hear about my feelings on a variety of mundane things, including but not limited to, the alphabet, shower curtains, coasters, and strawberry milkshakes).

I am excited to announce that my new favorite letter is P! P for pineapples, phones, penguins, pillowcases, and purses. It’s only natural that I would try to combine my favorite things, but when I tried putting a pineapple inside a pillowcase. . . well, lets just say it was very painful. But a purse made out of a pillowcase! Now that sounds just perfect. I made this one using a solid mint colored pillowcase. I added some leaf and elephant appliques to really wake it up! And of course, there is a Perfectly Pain-free How To so you can make one for yourself, and probably, a few friends! Maybe make some with crafty friends at your next Pajama Party, and be sure to post your creations!

    B for Burda… Do you want to know, that pillowcase is two P’s in Czech? It’s called povlak na polštář. :-) The pillowcase bag looks interesting, I should go through our piles.
