My daughter LOVES Fancy Nancy. And I have to admit, I’m a bit in love with her to. So when she caught sight of a bolt of pink Fancy Nancy fabric in the clearance bin, it didn’t take much to persuade me to buy it for her. We bought a yard to make a pillowcase.
We made it together one afternoon. Gianna squeezed on my shrinking lap and pushed the buttons on my machine to start and stop the sewing. It was a “winging it” sort of project. No pins, no measuring, no ironing, no seam finishing. We just folded it up and sewed.
By any commercial standards, it was awful, but in my daughter’s three-year old eyes, it was perfection. It was a pillow case just for her, and she made it with mommy.
