Easy Rosebud Pillowcases


The simplest of all pillowcases, cut as a big rectangles, with wide strips folded in and machine stitched to make the cuffs. Simple can be great, if you have a beautiful pristine length of vintage rosebud fabric!

I am interested in making pillowcase dresses for an African missionary. Have you made those? I'm a bit hesitant about cutting out the arm holes.

I've never made those--but if you're nervous, try it out on an ugly or worn-out pillowcase from the thrift store first. It sounds like a great idea.

Anna, I wonder if you'd care to include any of these points as a comment here:

On the blog, noelpiper.com,
there are "instructions for pillowcase dresses" among the March 13,2010 posts.

On the same blog, noelpiper.com, there are multiple precious posts having to do with "digging out of chaos" - check for the title "digging out of chaos" in the right margin index.

OK, I'll mention just one more: Noel shared a wonderful post on desiringGod.org dated October 1, 2003 - very worthwhile - http://www.desiringgod.org/resource-library/articles/never-in-january

I mention them for your consideration.

Buttercup again

I've so been wanting to try pillowcases - I really liked your rickrack ones - but we don't need any. I'm thinking a couple more won't hurt, though.
