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


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.


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.**


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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!
