One Fish. Two Fish.

Are you also a fan of Dr. Seuss?

Do you ever go into Jo-Anne's Fabrics just to "look around"? I usually purchase my fabric from my LQS, but I enjoy shopping at Jo-Anne's as well. On my recent visit, I discovered Dr. Seuss' fabrics available for sale! They had an entire line available. Since my daughter really enjoys books by Dr. Seuss, I decided to make her a fitted crib sheet with characters from the book.

I watched this YouTube video and followed every step as instructed. I purchased two yards of fabric, pre-washed the fabric, trim the piece down to 69", kept the selvage edges, cut out four 8"x8" squares in each corner, and used a 65" long elastic. And this fits her mattress perfectly! There is nothing I would do differently next time! I never knew it was this easy to make a fitted crib sheet.

I also finished up this small XOXO quilt I started more than a year ago. It feels good to finish up these unfinished projects.

I hand quilted the border using a new stencil I purchased. 

My weekend is off to a good start. I hope yours is as well!
