Sleepover Craft

Please note, this post does contain an affiliate link.  Thank you for supporting Barefoot by the Sea! 
As I mentioned before, we celebrated Riley's 11th Birthday last Friday evening with a sleepover.  Full of friends, giggling girls and good food, it was a wonderful celebration!  One of the fun things we did was decorate pillowcases.  I found a cool Mandala design and enlarged it so that each girl had their own.  Using fabric crayons (have you seen these Crayola 8-Count Fabric Crayons? So cool!) each girl outlined or colored the design to achieve their vision.  We then flipped the design so it was face down on a pillowcase. On the low iron setting, we transferred the design from paper to pillow.  The result was pretty impressive! Each girl did an equally beautiful job.  After that, they decided to sign one another's pillowcases to remember the day.  They had a blast personalizing them. A good time was had by all!  
I would definitely say this craft was a hit at the party.  After working up an appetite, we feasted on yummy tacos, cake and ice cream.  More on that coming soon!

Have a great day friends! 


  1. Sounds like a fun night for the girls! I love this pillow case craft! We did pillow cases at my older daughter's first sleepover. They signed each others with puffy paint and decorated them that way. This is so much cuter!

  2. I love this idea. Especially the thought of doing a pillow case craft at a sleepover. So cute! Good to see some real life results using those fabric crayons. They look great.

  3. Great idea :-)) I bet this was so much fun for the girls. I love it.

  4. I bet they loved every minute! I love that you took a craft and turned it into such a great memory for the girls!

  5. A simple life is good with me. I don't need a whole lot. For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoots on a beach and I'm happy. See the link
