Pink Fitted Sheet/Fitted sheet with heart applique

Pink  Fitted sheet
Plain pink  fitted sheet.  Queen size with 4 standard pillowcase and a bolster. 
Project Experience

This is one of my attempt to make queen size fitted sheet. My friends just bought a house.
She painted the house pink and combine it with purple curtain. While for the kitchen cabinet she chosed white. Quite interesting combination actually. So, for the sheet she bought pink fabric to accomplish her master bedroom.

She prefers plain concept. Therefore I only applied basic sewing techique for this project. The furnishing such as applique or ruffles is not required. Fortunately I got the correct measurement, calculation of  length and  width of the sheet i intend to sew, plus extra measurement of the rubber strings that  i want to pull the corners inside.  Right measurement plus the simple design..., I managed to get this project done fast. PHEW!!!.
Price at RM90 per set.

Fitted sheet with heart shape applique
The fitted sheet made for a friends in the queen size.  The patches work selected was  the  heart shape appliqué. The project comes with 4 standard pillows plus a bolster. Price at RM150 per set.

Project experience

I sew plain purple cotton for a base to give  sharp impression of the hearts. While for the applique hearts shape, I used full print American Cotton with modern design. Then the purple of the heart shape applique is much more deeper/darker rather than the plain cotton.

It is also hard for me to matchmake the purple contrast with the light fabric. I bought the light flowery fabric at JAKEL. I had to cut the fabric based on the flower allocation.Knowing my friend personality, soft spoken and girlish (ultimate fan of pink). I'm trying to find pink fabric for this project. However, at last only purple are available with flower motifs, then I had to chose it and match with the heart shape applique.
