Hello! Last fall I scored a boxful of fabric pieces for quilting, described HERE . Since then, I've used some of the pieces here and there, mostly for a few yo-yo's. But after seeing new quilting fabrics used to make decorative edgings for pillowcases, I decided to try a simplified version using my fabric find.
Found a pair of white pillowcases at a thrift store for 50c/pair; I was told they had been donated by a local hotel. They were very plain Jane, as you can see:
But with a little patchwork, plain Jane became pretty cute:
I used greens and pinks to match my comforter. Needless to say, this was very easy to do, and I had the fun of going through those fabric pieces again to pick out the ones I wanted to use.
I could dress this up further by adding rickrack trim, buttons, etc (these pillowcases are meant to be decorative; the pillowcases that came with our sheet sets are the ones used for sleeping on.)I'll see if I feel like doing anything more, but for now I'm pleased with how this project turned out!
