I finally got around to making up some of these easy tote bags made from pillowcases!
I'm a sucker for vintage linens or any linens I think are pretty so I had accumulated a small stack from yard sales and thrift stores. What I love most about these bags is that there is no waste or scraps leftover. The whole pillowcase is used and there's very minimal cutting! A good project for beginners or for trimming down your stash.
I had some spare time one night while waiting for dinner to finish cooking so I sat down and whipped up a pillowcase bag.
It turned out so cute and was so easy--much cuter than this one--so the next day I sewed up three more during nap time.
One was a king-sized pillowcase--it made a more squarish bag. The regular pillowcases make a more rectangle-shaped bag.
I plan to keep two of these for myself and put the other two aside in my gift stash!
