What to do with a pillowcase with no twin (or maybe you have twins and can use both!), or you make a fabulous pillowcase find at the thriftstore or garage sale? You can't just pass up a good deal! Here are some ideas for using those wonderful pillowcases to make some both useful and beautiful items.
At Red Instead BLOG you'll find a step-by-step photo presentation of how to change a pillowcase into this adorable dress:
This one needs a onesie or t-shirt for the top. I really liked little slipover dresses when my girls were toddlers.
This is very similar to the first, but I love the look and wanted to show the dress with the pretty embroidery. Notice, too, the addition of cute bloomers to extend the life of the dress.
The thriftstore pillowcase skirt at leahdramer.com may be just the thing. Leah writes, "This is a really satisfying and instantly gratifying sewing project. Perks include: (1) it's almost all sewn for you, (2) you have an excuse to visit thriftstores (to look for great old pillowcases), (3) the materials are cheap, (4) the fabric in old thriftstore pillowcases is often nicely worn in and has a great feel to it." It has a drawstring waist.
This Pillowcase Skirt has an elastic waist.
So now you know what to do with that extra pillowcase, and yes, you do have an excuse for buying that pretty pillowcase in the yard sale.
