My mom is terrible at keeping secrets. AWFUL! She told me about a duvet and cover set that she got me for x-mas, so I decided while being stuck inside because of over a foot of snow that I would stitch personalized pillowcases for the boy and I. I used free patterns from Annie Oakleaves and Andrea Zuill and the Bodoni MT Condensed font on Word. They're a bit wrinkly in the pictures because I had just finished them.



Side note: I love how grumpy the gnome is.
