    Today is National Make Your Bed Day…

    Posted by  ·  September 11, 2009

    …so we are celebrating with custom pillowcases and made beds (well some of us are — remember I also have teen boys)!

    FabricMarkers3

    To make our custom pillowcase we used Crayola Fabric Markers (I found them at Michael’s Arts & Crafts and used a coupon) and a plain white pillowcase.

    FabricMarkers1

    These markers are great! Bella literally spent hours working on her pillowcase.  She is really into hearts as you can see!  She asked me to draw a heart shape. The pillowcase was thin enough that I slipped a paper with a heart drawn on it in the middle and she could see it well enough to trace.  It would be fun to use coloring book pictures as templates also.  A child could easily decorate anyway they like, but if they seem intimidated have them make a drawing first on paper and then they can trace it.

    ** Make  sure you place a piece of cardboard inside the pillowcase to keep the markers from bleeding through to the other side. Read package directions for setting the fabric.**

    FabricMarkers2

    Really the possibilities are endless for this craft—- slumber party or birthday crafts, gifts, etc.. They could even be further embellished with bits of fabric, trims and embroidery.

    Bella loves her new pillowcase!

    If you would like to try out these awesome fabric markers please leave a comment on this post before Tuesday at midnight CST. Crayola is giving FIVE lucky readers a set of fabric markers!

      What a great easy craft! My girls love to decorate "their own" of anything and this would make the best activity for an upcoming birthday..... My 4 year old could have a pillowcase signed by all who love her. Affirmations to sleep on and treasure! Thanks for the idea!

    18. Monday, September 14th, 2009
      What a cute idea! These look even better than the fabric crayons.
    19. Monday, September 14th, 2009
      Your blog is fabulous!! I just ran across it today, and I can't wait to place an order for some of your fun patterns! We love all things Crayola at our house so these would be great. Thanks!

      P.S. grabbed your button and put it at myfourmonkeys.com. :)

      wow, i would love to use these with my boys to create something for their bed.. I can see one of them spending hours drawing his own train bedding, rather than asking me to make him more. How much fun!?
    21. Monday, September 14th, 2009
      I haven't tried these markers yet. What a clever idea to let your little one decorate their pillow case. I bet it might make going to bed a little easier at night! Thanks for the chance to win!!

      These are great! I would love to try these with my toddler...the possibilities are endless!!

      Monday, September 14th, 2009
      My toddler is into all things marker related and would love these! Plus, we're decorating her room for her new "big girl bed" so this would be a fun project.
    24. Sunday, September 13th, 2009
      I've been wanting some fabric markers for my nephew lately! He always wants to make something when he's here and he would love to decorate his own shirts.
    25. Sunday, September 13th, 2009
      Awesome idea, my little girl would have so much fun doing that!!

      I would love to win a set of these. I am making pillowcases for my dd volleyball team with ribbons sewed in team colors. I was trying to think of a way to write the girls names without using paint pens (oh so messy for me!) Thanks for the chance. CindyML

      Sunday, September 13th, 2009
      I've seen fabric paint -- which we've found to be pretty gloppy -- but never fabric markers. Cool!
    29. Sunday, September 13th, 2009
      My art loving kids would really love this!
    30. Ginger

      Oh my, markers for fabric...how fun are those. I guess there are already markers for fabric, but they are not Crayola our favorite brand in this house. My 7 year old and I would love to use these for a sleep over art project. The pillow case coloring is a great idea, thanks.
    40. Kristin

    43. Saturday, September 12th, 2009

      I didn't know Crayola made fabric markers! How fun!
    44. Janet Olsen
      Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      I have seen these, but never tried them. It would so much fun to 'create' with these!
    45. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      I am a little wary of what my toddler would do with markers that aren't supposed to wash out. Then again, we never let her play with markers. It might a cute present for grandparents hand decorated by their favorite little terror.
    46. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      Those markers are so neat. I'm totally dreaming of all the things I -- and *we* -- could create with those.
    47. Amanda
      Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      would love to have a set of those markers! So cute :)

      A great idea! My kids might not protest bedtime so much if they had decorated their own pillowcases. Maaaaybe.
    51. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      What a fantastic idea!!! I am always looking for fun ways to celebrate silly holidays like this one.

      I am going to highlight this entry on my blog...

      Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      Easy fun kid friendly craft. Need those right now!!!!
    53. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      Wow, those are so cool. My kids would be all over them, especially my 6yo, who wants to be a fashion designer ;)
    54. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      What an awesome give away! Oh the fun that could be had...
    55. Saturday, September 12th, 2009
      If Crayola makes it...that's good enough for me!! I am the Crayola Queen!!!

      These pillowcases are adorable. Such a great gift idea. Wouldn't it be cute to use them to track your child's milestones? First Day of School, First Loose Tooth, etc.? I can't wait to get started!!!

      Thanks for sharing.
    56. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Nifty! I don't care one whit about making beds (they're just gonna get messy again, anyway, lol!) but I dig the idea of custom made pillowcases. Sign me up for a box, please.

      :D
    57. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Finally!!!! i love crayola and I love to make things with my children, perfect perfect perfect.... No more worries of bleeding colors or colored fingers. Super excited
    58. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      These would be really cool to have. Maybe it would encourage my daughter to make her bed.
    59. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I would love to win these!!!
    60. Kristi

      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I am so going to buy these to make Christmas presents for the grandparents. Not sure what I can sew them into, but I'll figure that out later...and maybe one for mommy too!

      What a wonderful idea! I hope I win.....
    69. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      oh wow! Cool beans. They would be perfect for my son to re-colour a pillow case he spent a ton of time on when he was 3. i didn't heat set it correctly, so he can now do it again, 3 years later. thanks for the info. and product review.
    70. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Clever and fun! Can't wait to let my toddler do it!
    71. Sue
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      This is a wonderful idea! I have a soon to be 5 year old that's really into wanting to make her own things that aren't' always exactly like her 3 year old sister's things. It would be a neat thing to do for her 5th birthday party to have each child make their own, or even she have her own to make and keep each year, or should I say, me, to keep in her hope chest each year. Very cute idea and I would love a set of these markers!
    72. Elizabeth Neratko

      These sound perfect for a fun preschool craft. I know my daughter would love to give them a try.

      Great idea for a sleepover craft.

      My five year old is surfing tonight with me and has declared the need for a great pillowcase "like that girl's". Great job Bella. We'll be making our own soon!
    79. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Oh, the irony! None of the beds were made this morning...
    80. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I am always looking for fun projects when my granddaughters spend the night. This would be so perfect. They could be their own personal Grandma's House pillowcases!
    81. Kathy Hawkes
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a neat idea. My grandchildren would love doing this (I know I would too!!) as part of a sleepover party.

      Oh how my girls would love this...I actually had to make my hallway the
      group chalk board...we painted the wall 4 ft up from the floor (mostly to already cover the decorations the kids already placed there) LOL !!
      My 6 year olds birthday is coming up, what a great idea for the girls to do, color their own pillow case to take home, what a memory for them and my daughter...Thank you so much...

      My three boys would have so much fun with these on one of those days when they're "bored" and I need to pull out a new idea. It would be fantastic! I love the idea of using coloring book pages to trace shapes. Superheroes are all the rage currently in our house!
    85. Natalie
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      My kids would love to use these on shirts and all kinds of things! I'd love to try them out too!

      Fantastic! I have never used fabric markers, but would like to try. I just purchased a stamp pad and small letters to try stamping on clothes. I'm spreading my wings of creativity lately!! These would really help!
    89. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      These markers look like fun!

      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      This will be great for those "I'm bored"! days. And also I can see using these markers in my quilting. Oh the wheels are starting to turn!

      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      These fabric markers look so fun and bright. My kids would love to try this out. You could use these to personalize gifts. The wheel in my head are turning.
    94. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Oh my kids would love this! My 7th grade son came hoem today saying everyone was supposed to wear a football jersey to school on Monday and he asked if we could make one. What?! Where would I buy holey football jersey fabric? Now I know we can buy the markers and color our own!
    95. Paulina
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a great idea for my 3 yr old that LOVES to color! I'll try this with a pillowcase and a coloring book page of Disney princesses! THANKS!

      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I love the idea! don't worry about allergies - I bet they have tested them! They would be tons of fun! I think they would be great in a classroom!
    97. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      We actually found Crayola pillow case and fabric crayon sets at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and colored them monday night. My oldest daughter picked out the butterfly pillowcase and my youngest picked out dinosaur. It suits their personalities perfect. We had so much fun coloring them as a family and then we traced around their hands on the back and put the date so they will be great keepsakes!
    98. Amy
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      How have I missed these markers? My girls are 6 and 4 and would LOVE this project! I especially like the idea of holiday/seasonal pillow cases. What a fun rainy-day craft idea.

      To address the issue of skin sensitivity, you could leave one side unadorned and have the child flip the pillow to the plain side for sleeping.
    99. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Oh, yes! We would love to try some. We love crayola and we love fabric. How fun to combine them!

      I didn't know there was a National Make Your Bed Day! I am always doing crafts and projects with my grandchildren. When they were younger I got seasonal fabric and made them pillow cases - Valentines, Fall, Christmas, Easter, Etc. They loved it.
      This would be something I would really like to do with them and I know they would enjoy. They are so proud of there little paper and coloring projects, they would be blown away with a pillow case THEY made and could use! Thanks for sponsoring the give-a-way!

      I have never seen the Crayola Fabric Markers either. I will have to look next time I go to Michael's. What a wonderfully less messy alternative to painting t-shirts too.
    106. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      If today is National Make Your Bed Day, is tomorrow National Lie In It Day? If so, I'll be glad to participate.
    107. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a fun idea! I have never seen these markers before. I have two kids that would love this project!
    108. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a fun idea! I might have to try those out this weekend.
    109. Laura
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a fantastic idea! I am always looking for something the grandkids enjoy doing and this looks like so much fun. Slumber party at grandma's house and their own little decorated pillowcases to take home. This grandma is just a kid at heart so I can't wait to try it.
    110. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I love the pillow! I hope to win a set of the markers. My kids are grown, but I've been wanting to trace some of their art onto a tee shirt and incorporate some of the characters they made up.
    111. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Brings back vintage memories...but using my aunt's embroidery pens. SO...pick me! I would love to use the markers in my AWANA class.
    112. Jeanette Reed
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Winning these would make a great house warming gift for my sons and my best friends daughter to use as a project in our new home!
      I will also be tweeting, plurking, facebooking and posting this everywhere I can!! .. lol..
    113. Jeanette Reed
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      This is absolutely wonderful!!! My sons and I are planning to relocate to a new town with a friend of mine and her daughter in about a month or so. This project would be great for them to do to personalize there spaces! We will definitely be trying this out once we move and can get the supplies to get started. Thanks so much for this great idea! I absolutely love your blog with all of its wonderful information, resources and projects. Keep up the good work and keep them coming!

      It is interesting to try these fabric markers. I doubt I will use it for the pillow case especially for the child - it may cause allergy. Direct contact with the skin for several hours at night.Crayola is a famous and high quality brand, but....better safe than sorry. Decorating clothes seems the best for me. Another thing to consider - hand -washing or machine-washing?
    115. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      That looks like allot of fun! And I am not talking about for the kids, I am talking about me! LOL! Sure hope I win one of these!

      And your daughter did a great job! And she is cute too! My granddaughters' name is Isabella!
    116. Danielle
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      What a great project -- my kids would love to sleep on their very own decorated pillow case!

      I am usually covering every surface area to protect from fabric paint OOPs. This look like they work like regular markers. Would to try them.

      What a cute idea! I was just thinking what a great craft project this would be for a birthday party/favor.
    129. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      That is such a neat idea! I know all of my kids would love this one.

      I had never heard of these before. As an adult crafter I would like to try these! If you had children or grandchildren you could have all sorts of fun projects with these.
    133. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Great product even better idea! How cute! Definitely going to try these with my budding artist.

      I haven't tried those yet. Sounds like by 6 and 8 year old would have a BLAST!!!
    135. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I recently discovered Crayola's Window Markers, but had no clue they made fabric ones too!
      I like how you find obscure Holidays and make them fun for your kids, thank for the great ideas! :)

      I love the pillowcase. I would love to have my 10 and 11 year old girls in class at church make these pillowcases. These markers would be wonderful for that. I didn't know they had these fabric markers but they will definitely be useful to me.

      I had already planned to have our Daisy Girl Scout troop decorate pillowcases at their December pj party and now I know just how to do it and what markers to use. Winning a set would certainly help our small craft supply budget. Thank you for the great information!
    143. Kate
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Add me to the list of those who hadn't yet heard of these. What a great idea! My daughter would love to do this. Not a day goes by that she isn't coloring, and I can imagine how proud she would be to create a pillowcase of her own. Thanks for sharing this!
    144. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      These look like so much fun!
    145. Sheila
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I think my own girls would love this, but I was also thinking what a great gift it would be to send white (or other solid) pillowcases and a set of these markers to my nieces and nephews. I need to write that idea down!
    146. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      These would make really cute travel pillows.
    147. Tisha
      Friday, September 11th, 2009
      That is so cute what a cool idea!
    148. Friday, September 11th, 2009

      Wow! What a great idea - my kids would LOVE to do this project!!
    150. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      i did this when i was little with those "puffy" paints for fabric.. never got much use out of the pillowcase however, it was way to "puffy!" ... so im heading out to find these.. cause THIS looks fun AND comfy!
    151. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      Cute idea and cute picture of your daughter!

      Another awesome idea - I guess I never realized Crayola made fabric markers, would love to win a set; but I'm definitely putting them on my next shopping list. Too cool.

      What fun! I have 4 kids that would love to decorate pillowcases...we might even have a slumber party and let their friends decorate some too

      These are awesome! My kids did a similar project using handkerchiefs (they also did pillow cases) when we were on a cruise. They had the best time coloring their projects. The pillow cases have been washed & they lovingly remember their cruise when they use those cases!

      I may use a plain tablecloth for the "kids" table at Christmas & let the kids decorate it with the markers. How awesome would that be for an annual reminder of their youth!

      I've never heard about those markers, oops, but they look awsome, i will definatelly give it a try. We can even try to make the whole bed set, can you imagine how peacefull our houses will be, with the kids drawing all day "in bed"? Thanks
    162. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I've never seen those markers before. Too fun! My kids would love this project.

      Hmmmm . . .you've got me thinking. WE are having a Halloween birthday party in October, maybe decorating the pillow case for trick or treating could be an activity at the party . . .

      I would love these markers and if I don't win I may just go buy some. The possibilities are endless and I already have projects floating around in my head. Combined with the Cricut there is no stopping me.

    174. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I would love to try these markers. I have tried other fabric markers and the colors were not as vibrant and they bled into the fabric. They are great for making custom teacher gifts!
    175. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      My son would be in heaven with these markers!!! And crap does this mean i have to make my bed today??

    179. Friday, September 11th, 2009
      I LOVE this idea. It's easy enough for my toddler to take part in, but cute enough to give away as gifts. We would really love a new set of fabric markers...what a great idea! Thanks!
