  • Project: day 140: get crafty & crafty kiddos: cute and simple party craft + favor in one: monogrammed pillow cases!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2, a bit time consuming to iron on each letter straight, but thanks to my mom (she’s amazing), it went very smoothly!
  • Would I do it again? yes. It was a great craft/activity for the girls to do while they were waiting for their next spa station! They signed each girls pillow case with their names and pictures; they loved it!
  • What I would do differently: I could not find larger letters anywhere! Oh well, zebra pattern is Hayden’s favorite!
  • Items used: white pillow cases, sharpies (I know, dangerous!), cardboard inside each pillow case so the ink did not bleed through, iron-on zebra print letters (from Michael’s).

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
