pillowcase fun


Everywhere you look, people are using vintage pillowcases to make fun stuff. I remember forever ago, like 5 years or so, everyone was making the little pillowcase skirts. I did make one. Although I kind of always just felt like it was indeed a pillowcase with a drawstring waist. But Betz White's new book, Sewing Green has me rethinking the pillowcase projects, as well as a few other people who have done some cute things with them.  
Here are some cute repurposed pillowcase projects:

This adorable picnic quilt over at Sew Nancy I really love this. It is so airy and sweet and nostalgic, and perfect for summertime.

This simple bag on Martha's site…the perfect little beach bag, carryall


The shirred summer top on Betz's blog is super sweet, and such a great idea for little girls, too.
Oh, you know what would be fun, too. I am always a fan of granny nighties in the summertime. It would be fun to take a vintage sheet in a wacky print and make a long, shirred granny nightie/mumu thingie. yeah! I can see myself schlumping around the house in such a thing.
