A Special Pillowcase

So I have been thinking a lot about what to bring to the hospital when I deliver Lucy. The last go around with Violet, I literally packed a change of clothes and that was it!

Recently, someone suggested that I should bring my own pillow for comfort, but be sure to get a snazzy pillowcase so that it doesn't get mixed in with the hospital's supply. That's when I turned to Etsy to find the prettiest vintage pillowcase!

I found this one from seller ErikawithaK. I LOVE how sweet the floral print is.

After Lucy is born, I want to make her a little dress or skirt from the fabric. I think it will be a special reminder of the the day she was born ;)

What do you think of that idea?

That pillow case is so lovely. I LOVE the idea of turning it into something for the baby. What a sweet idea.

What a beautiful pillowcase!!
I adore that fabric pattern!

I basically love this idea! Just a thought, though, can you make something that she won't outgrow from the fabric? Maybe a little throw pillow for her bed? (when she is old enough that that is not dangerous to keep in her bed) A stuffed animal? A block of a quilt?

That's a really sweet idea. And the pillowcase is just lovely!

I love that skirt idea! She may outgrow it, but if you took a cute picture of her like on the pillow or with you holding her (and the pillow is in the picture) and then take a picture of her a little later wearing the skirt... ah priceless! :) can't outgrow pictures!

I think that's a perfect idea. :)
