OK, so I realized lately that I may have a pillowcase obsession...and have even been asked by more than one person..."What are you going to do when your daughter doesn't fit in a pillowcase anymore?".
It's true that I love to sew with pillowcases. They are so cheap, and already sewn together...which can help in some cases:) So, I have decided to see if I can find 50 different ways to use a pillowcase! Think I can do it? I think the hardest part will be finding CUTE pillowcases.
To clarify the rules (because it's my challenge and I can make up any rules I want), I may use scraps from the same pillowcase...I mean...why waste?
So to kick off my challenge (my husband laughs when I make up challenges for myself)...here is my first project:
Pillowcase Challenge #1: Peasant Top
This is actually made from a pillow sham which was a little harder because the back is in two pieces and not one large piece.
Mine is just a tad different than the one on their website. I made my bottom ruffle a little too short so it kept flipping up, so I sewed a top stitch along the elastic to keep the flap in place...and also added an extra ruffle on the bottom since it was a little too short for my girlie.
I really do love that website! They make their tutorials SO easy to understand...and that's great for a beginning sewer like me:)
