My Friday Finish-Little Things

So I was able to finish up a couple of little projects this week that had been lingering in the sewing room. It feels good to have something finished. Sometimes it feels like I have so many things started and nothing finished. I am sure you know what I mean.
 First I had to get a pillow case made for Sweet J. I had made one for the other two boys, and when I found this much Jack and Jenny still in my stash, I knew that was it. I love making pillow cases. takes 30 minutes. Seriously.
 Then, I needed buttons for the two towel sets for my girls. I was going to go buy some, but then I remembered these cover your own buttons I bought several years ago. Yes!! So fun to make.
 And here they are in action on the towels. I used Alison Glass Feathers for the towels and I love the way it looks.

 And the same print in black for the other set. I know these will get lots of use in the kitchens.

I hope you have a great Friday. I will be linking up later to CrazyMom Quilts and Sewjo Saturday.
