Pillow case purse

I saw the cutest tutorial for a Pillowcase Purse and since I didn't have a pillow case that would look good cut up as a purse, I ran to Hancocks and found some fabric on their sale rack that would be fun. I started by making a pillow case, then I cut it up to follow the directions. I like how it turned out and it's fun to carry in the summer - has a nice vintage look to it!

Pillow Case Dress

My grandmother used to make these for me when I was growing up, so I thought I've give them a try too. They were very easy and turned out cute. I did them for a friend at our church that has two little girls - I'm afraid Mike would be a bit upset if I made them for Aiden :) One dress was a size 6 months and the other was 18 months and they took less than 2 yards of fabric to make both!!

(dont' pay attention to the horrible picture - it was taken against our paint test wall
