A colorful latina momento: Easy DIY Pillowcase Tutorial
It has been a rather busy week and quite entertaining. The change in weather is making me all nostalgic and seems to be doing some projects which makes me feel closer to my family. The last time I saw my aunt she was making a beautiful dress for the peregrinos for the summer fiesta. I was thinking of her as I decided to create an Easy DIY Pillowcase Tutorial for my little Dog Chow family.
I noticed that my little Dog Chow family likes to lie on something soft and I keep pushing a pillow under him to see if he would like it. Well, little did I know it was just the comfort he was looking for, spoiled already. I decided to do some embroidery and see how it will turn out since it has been ages I have done anything like that. Yeah, too much to do and not enough time in the day, lol. Here we go, I found the time and seems everyone was enjoying the project as well.
I was browsing through Target as usual and found a nice pillow in store. Well, it was just the right size for my little Tiny. I decided to get it, never thought I would find this little pillow there. Target never seize to amaze me with little surprises. It made me so excited. I eagerly went home and sort through the closet to see what I can use. I found a nice soft T-shirt to make a pillow case for the pillow. You know the old t-shirt are the best and softest, right? Well, I gave her a petticure. Oh, it is so adorable.
Well, to begin I got some help to draw a pattern on the pillowcase for me to embroidery. Yes, one of those Mexican rose from one of those beautiful Huipil dresses. Next I went looking for my case of needle work. Yes, I enjoy working with my hands. I enjoy making lovely gifts to giveaway for that special occasion. This is a memorable occasion as it is our first of many I can imagine.
All energized, I imagined all the colors and began my task for the day. I sure hope you enjoyed the brilliant colors I decided on. Did you know that the colors your wear energized your day? Of course, I mean keep him ready to be on the go with us, yes? Keep me smiling so I can finished faster.
Next, I cut it to the size of the pillow to get the right fit to sew up the sides. Oh, I was amazed at how beautiful it was with colors. Everyone who saw the embroidery was complimenting the handiwork. This little project is making me think of the holidays and gifts.
Finally, embroidery complete and all edges sewn together. Now to see how the whole pillowcase looks. I am please with the colorful project. It is quite motivating to see what my next project will be, lol.
Oh, now for some exercise of the day, our daily walk on this cool day. It is always a joy to breathe in the fresh air and energized early or relax at the end of the day.
Then to see if Tiny likes my handiwork as much as everyone. You know it really makes me happy to be able to do these fabulous handiwork that I learned from my latina family and proud of my heritage. I must say he is quite spoiled, he enjoys a massage now and then.
Well, since we are so close to the joys of fiestas. I had to let our little Dog Chow family join in the fiestas. We got one of those costumes at Target as well. It had to show our latina culture. Fantastico!
Oh I recently realized that Purina Dog Chow has new packaging for the Dog Chow for all life stages for our pet. You can see the new packaging HERE.
We enjoy shopping for our my little Dog Chow family at Target. You can find these products and more in the Pet Care Department. Did you realized that the Dog Chow Small Dog is formerly Little Bites? I enjoy the fact that Dog Chow has 90 years of proven nutrition which is awesome as it means it is High Quality Food, Made by Dog Lovers Like You. It has a highly digestible formula with protein for strong muscles (more than 21g of protein per cup.) I also like the idea that it is always crafted in our own US plants, at home.
