    These turned out beautifully! What a time commitment!

     

    I showed this to my good friend and she basically lost her mind over the Michigan State cover. I promised her I'd try to find the fabric and make one for her (AND ONLY HER)  where did you find the MSU fabric?

      I bought it from Hobby Lobby here in East Lansing. If you pm me your address ill send you what I have left of the MSU fabric (its only enough to make one so you're in luck lol) but I don't have plans to make anything else so ill be happy if someone else can use it instead of it going to waste :)

                Wow I'm so impressed!! Umm...for the less talented (I don't even own a sewing machine), you should make/sell them on Etsy! I'm still trying to find some good ones on there. Thanks for sharing, your guests will love!!

                  thanks everyone :)  I actually got the idea from sellers on Etsy.  I was originally going to get just a few for my fam but then I got the sewing machine and thought maybe I could make them for everyone.  My talents are nowhere near theirs but there are a bunch on Etsy, anywhere from $5-$10ish per cover (that's why I made them myself, but for just a few people they are really great)

                    Hey Megan! Thank you again for the MSU fabric! I finally got the time to get this done, and it was really quick once I got all set up and moving. I made three this afternoon from fabric I had on hand, and I might end up doing these for all my guests once I have a final count.
