Upcycled Pillowcases

In my previous post "Fun Weekend Project" I promised I would show you some of the other crafty ways to UPcycle a pillowcase. Sooo....here are a few I found.

Check out this super cute bag made by the Farm Chicks

Calamity Kim made these precious drawstring bags that totally put my little guys to shame!!

or this cute bag fromburdastyle.com-I am totally in love with this website! Open source sewing what a great concept! If you are a newbie like me it's a great place to find tutorials and there are lots of free patterns too! (FREE!! That's one of my favorite words!)

or here's another gem! also from burdastyle.com

or check out pillowcase nightgown

or this apron at recycleyourday.com

or this dress at the Red Instead blog....and it comes with instructions!

how about these "lounge pants" for little girls from Jane's Apron? LOVEEEE IT!

or a skirt from DIYlife

or how cute is this one???? from Bella Dia???

ok....just one more, super cute one from craftlog

I want one of each, please. I love that you called them "upcycled," rather than "recycled."

OK, now I need to go visit all these wonderful sites...
