Before + After: Pillowcases

June 21st

Take a couple vintage pillowcases (which my local thrift store has buckets of for $.50) + a great tutorial, a bit of bias tape, ric rac and perhaps a maybe a little ribbon to create some dresses for a sweet little girl who turns 2 this weekend:

I used a bit of fabric to whip up a third; I wanted to see if I could make one of these on my own. Also, giving things in threes feels right.

Different sizes for a quickly growing girl. Happy birthday, baby R!

  1. Adorable! I always wanted to make some of those pillowcase dresses for my nieces and then time went by and they would be too “cool” for them if I made them now. I do have to get back to my sewing machine and make some pretty things…maybe once my daughter leaves for college in August my creativeness will come back, plus it will keep me busy so I wont miss her so much! Thanks as always for inspiring me!

  2. Very nice, Kelli!

  3. They are all SO cute! The one with the birds is my favorite though. 🙂
