One of my good friends, Tara Whitney said she was making her kids "Summer" baskets for the last day of school. I thought it was a great idea, and it just might help alleviate some the mom guilt I have over not being able to help out in the class room for Thom much this past school year.
We have a fun summer planned and I want to kick it off in style. I made Thom and his buddy matching pillowcases for sleep overs. Pillowcases are fun to make because they don't take any time and and if you find your fabric on sale, they can be really cheap. You will need about a 3/4 yard to make a standard pillowcase. Buy a full yard if you want contrasting fabric on the edge.
Here's the other things in Thom's "Summer 2011" basket:
Big League Chew
Roasting Sticks & Marshmellows
Summer Reading Books & Chart
Got any other great ideas? His last day is tomorrow.
