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 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.
