Many years ago, I covered my pillows with fabric I have now grown out of - meaning: I really don´t like them anymore. I have been thinking about new pillowcases for a while now and during a visit in IKEA the other day I got some really nice fabric on sale and some lace curtain-scraps for almost nothing. The best thing about the fabric probably was the color: curry/mustard/crazy-yellow/greenish.
This is what I made out of it:
IKEA fabric and curtain-scraps:
it was a bit tricky to sew the two fabrics together but it was worth the effort...
I really love the way the yellow/greenish shines through the white lace curtains
(p.s. my older son likes this one too and want´s one of his own to sleep with in the night)
the back: my cases are open so it´s really easy to wash them
An old doily from my favorite thriftstore and IKEA fabric
- what a nice way to use/recycle old doilies -
the two together, waiting for their brothers and sisters I´m currently working on...
