In honor of Lilly's 4th birthday: a "Lilly-colored" pillowcase GIVEAWAY!

One week from today it will be Lilly's 4th birthday.  Oh yeah, and Independence Day (Fourth of July) too.  :)

I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway in Lilly's honor.  What I will be giving away are TWO Lilly-colored pillowcases.  These pillowcases are made by Cassie, who makes and sells things in honor of her little sister, Hannah, that is in heaven playing with Lilly.  ;)

I bought the little patriotic rag doll (in the photo next to LillyBear) for Lilly's birthday present this year.  I like to add one thing to her July 4 themed collection each year.

I love Cassie's pillowcase design.  I chose the fabric and she had four pillowcases whipped up for me within days.  (I am keeping two and giving away two.) She is an excellent seamstress.  Check out her blog  at with items for sale - it includes a number of cute pillowcases.  She takes special orders too.  :)

It's not super clear in the above photo, but the red fabric on the right side has tiny white polka dots.  I LOVE polka dots.  :)  Examples:

Just contact me if you'd like to enter!  Leave a comment, e-mail me at my main e-mail address or at LittleFirecrackerLilly   ( a t) g mail. c om (remove spaces).  I will pick a winner randomly, the day after Lilly's birthday.  

So be sure to enter and then watch for a winner to be announced Saturday, July 5th.  I'm excited to see who will win!

Thank you again to Cassie for helping make this giveaway possible. Your sewing is beautiful.  Just like you.  :)
