Take one very wrinkled (I should have ironed it first) pillow case. This is a vintage pillowcase and I love the colours and pattern.
Then using the instructions from this site turn it into a grocery bag or everyday tote.
Very cute and practical.
Now anyone that knows me, will know that I will always think of another way of doing things ... Well, I am going to track down some Christmas Santa Sacks (in the sales) and make some cute gift bags using the same principle. I will need to be careful with ones with designs as the pillowcase is turned into itself to make the lining. I hope to be able to get some and show you the results very soon.
