Roundup: Upcycled Pillowcase Tutorials

Happy New Year! My parents just arrived for a two week stay, so there hasn’t been much crafting time, but for those of you looking for some projects, here is a roundup of ways to recycle pillowcases into something else.

Number 1: The Always Popular Pillowcase Tote Bag.


This tutorial is by Max and Ellie and features detailed instructions.

Number 2: Cafe Style Apron with Pockets

This tutorial was designed by Lee-Ann from Whoopsie Daisies and featured on Vintage Indie. It’s made from two pillowcases and has those always important pockets.

Number 3: Pillowcase Dress

I found this kid’s dress tutorial on Craftleftovers It was designed and written up by Australian blogger and author Alissa Devanny of Refashion.

Number 4: Pillowcase Pajama Bottoms

Brandy of Minivan Life put together this tutorial. I think the dress and the bottoms together would make for a cute, complete set of pajamas.

Oh, and don’t forget that you can always cut up those pillows and sheets to make fabric yarn.
