A Pillow-Case Redux

Welcome to Monday on Mixology Crafts brought to you by Cyndi of Lovely Lula. This week is fashion wearables so I have brought you a girls pillow-case dress, inspired by the book “Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase” by Suzanne J. E. Tourtillott

I started with a vintage pillow-case that I found at a thrift store for a buck ninety-nine. I added in a second vintage/ used pillow-case also purchased at a thrift store that had a print. I used the Cricut Forever Young cartridge and several of the flower dies for the Cuttlebug to make appliques.  The full how to is located in the downloadable PDF below titled Pillow-case dress. This is a one day project not including the thrift shopping which I encourage you to do often because there are so many goodies to be had at thrift shops and yard sales.

The things you’ll need for this project include:     vintage/used pillow case(s), sewing machine, thread, scissors, Crucuit, Cuttlebug, chalk, no-sew tape, iron, fusible interfacing and Velcro or buttons.

Enjoy making this project and happy crafting! Lovely Lula
