When I was a kid my mom made sure I knew how to sew. I was actually pretty good at it, but it's a skill that sits dormant in my life for lots of reasons. Yet every once in awhile I feel a sewing itch - kind of like when you're wearing a wool sweater and you just have to rip it off and run through a raspberry patch naked to satisfy the tremendous need to scratch. Except maybe not quite so dramatic.
Lately I don't have time to sew anything major, so I decided that it would be fun to make a pillowcase dress out of an actual pillowcase - it's some seriously easy and fast sewing, plus I'd never made one before. But I wanted to get creative with it, so I scoured Pinterest for ideas. These are my favorites:
And now, if anyone needs to find me, I'll be searching all the second hand stores in the state looking for perfect pillowcases to use!
