Conkerr cancer

One of the ways to earn points in Stash Game is to sew for charity.  This time around the charity is Conkerr Cancer.  A group who collects bright, fun pillowcases for children who are undergoing cancer treatment.  I decided to sew up some pillowcases that would use up some of the many yards of flannel I purchased on Black Friday last year.  And the year before.  And the year before that....  It's just so cheap that day!  Cheaper than any other day of the year! 

I thought I would start off with ten and see if I could get those sewn up in one night.  Success!  I sat down Friday night at about 9 or so and finished up all the pillowcases by 11 something.  I even made a pillowcase for my brother.  I found the fabric for that one in a tub of fabric I purchased from a coworker.  It was 1994 Power Ranger fabric with all the original Power Rangers on it!  Daniel has loved the Power Rangers since he was young (he was 3 in 1994).  I couldn't figure out what to do with this as 1 yard wasn't enough for pj pants or a button up shirt.  So it was destined to become a pillowcase! 

I made all these pillowcases and then discovered that the only place in ALL of Kansas that accepts them is a hospital about an hour away.  I want to try and get about 10 more finished in the next 10 days and then mail them all at once!



I know the fabric is kind of hard to see but there is Muppets, Barbie, Hannah Montana, kitties, Dale Earnhardt Jr, pirates, and gold fish.
