Rainbow Inspired Pocket Pillowcase


My daughter's My Little Pony/Rainbow Dash obsession isn't waning a bit. While poking around in the remnant box at Walmart she found this strip of rainbow flannel: 79cents. There wasn't much to the width or length but she was insistent on buying it. She was too cute about it to say no to. :)
Later, in the remnant corner at Hobby Lobby, we found a larger piece of star flannel for about $2 and figured there was enough between the two to make a pillowcase.

Earlier this year I made my son a flannel monkey pillow, with pockets, for his beanie baby sized monkey.  Click here to see it. So, of course, my dear daughter's pillow had to have pockets as well.




Luckily there was enough star fabric to cover a side and a half...not much of the rainbow material.




 After the "photo shoot," I found myself thinking of Rainbow Bright. Remember her? She was my rainbow obsession. Guess this apple didn't fall far from the tree! lol
