The materials for this project – 3/4 yard for the main fabric, 1/3 yd for the band fabric, and 4 inch fabric strip for the accent strip – as packed up in a little zip lock bag took up less space than the finished product. But the finished pillowcase, ah, that will be stored in a room other than my sewing room. Here are those ladybugs up close. Aren't they adorable? I do seem to have a penchant for dots!

Ladybug Pillowcase- Completed
There is something to be said for small projects. They give you such a sense of satisfaction and no UFOs. Last night, instead of sitting in front of the TV, I went upstairs and sewed. Often by the time evening comes, after a day of work or a after dance lesson, I just become a couch potato. I rationalize it, somewhat, by "I am knitting" or "I am bonding with my husband". But last night I decided to do a small kit I had just purchased simply because the fabric combination really appealed to me. I did not start until after 9 PM and but it was totally finished about an hour later, complete with French seams with no raw edges
