Pillowcase Dress & Barrel Monkeys {tutorials} . . . LOVE IT! {Blog Features}

One of my readers, Michelle from Delicate Construction, made a darling dress/shirt out of 
a pillowcase!  Most of us have extra pillowcases hanging around. Well, at least I do.  I tend to lose one out of the set, so that typically leaves me with one pillowcase.  UGH!
This is an excellent way to use up those pillowcases!
Bonus?  There are a lot of cute patterned pillowcases, and these patterns you typically won't see 
 in a Joann or Hancock's.  This broadens your fabric choices!

How adorable is that???  

You can see Michelle's tutorial here where she teaches you how to make one.

Can we say this is a perfect {thrifty} idea for a baby gift?
I do not know about you, but us Mormons pop out more kids than anyone I know, so that means lots of baby showers. :)

After you get done making that adorable pillowcase shirt or dress, head on over to Sew Stylish Boutique (more wonderful readers of mine), and check out their barrel monkeys!
I love new (and cool) toys, especially now that I have a toddler who is always looking
for new things to play with.
I could also see this as a teether, so make some monkeys and the dress for an adorable baby gift.

How fun is that???

  1. Thanks so much for featuring our Barrel Monkeys! That pillowcase dress is adorable... I tend to buy vintage pillowcases. I have about 4 laying around waiting for something to me done with them. Love the idea for baby showers. Again thanks!
