I'm a sucker for projects that repurpose things I have around the house. Or things I can buy cheaply at the thrift store that end up looking like a million bucks. I couldn't pin this project fast enough when I saw it. A skirt out of a pillowcase? Ummm, yes. I loved this tutorial from The Greenista, but I altered mine just a bit. I couldn't really figure out what they were saying about the ribbon at the waist band and not having to sew anything. Maybe it's just me . . . I cut my pillowcase down to the length I wanted plus an inch or so and just sewed a casing at the top to thread some elastic through.
Wish as I might, I'm pretty sure my particular mid-section will not fit into a pillowcase. Not that I've tried, I'm just pretty good at estimating stuff like that. Whatever. I found a beautiful gray floral pillowcase at Goodwill and thought I would whip one up for my daughter.
I really do appreciate you all stopping by every day. Come back tomorrow for a homemade chalk board paint project.
