    This would be a great craft if I had some clean Vintage pillowcases! This one is my first attempt (with an old pillowcase.) The bottom is actually rectangular. What do you think?

    Had to work this one up a little differently because of the embroidery.

    That is just toooooo cute!!!!! Are you planning on selling them or using them as gifts? Looks like they would make a great gift for just about any aged girl/teen

    I originally thought I would use them as gifts, but if people thought they were good enough, I might try to sell them. What do you think they should sell for? I would love to find vintage pillowcases and use those. I am just getting back into my fabric crafts.

    P.S. Love your fabric baskets.

    Perhaps you could offer a trade here on BYC. People could send you 2-3 old nice pillowcases. You make them a nice tote bag out of one and send back to them and keep the others for your stash?

    This one was actually made from a tablecloth, not a pillowcase.

    This is another pillowcase (recycled.)
