When you don’t feel so good, do you find yourself thinking of all of the things you want to do when you feel better?
I do….and I did! I was a little ‘under the weather’ last week and thought of all kinds of projects I wanted to do just as soon as I could.
I feel better now and the first thing I did was make new pillowcases. I wash my pillowcases more often than my sheets and they were thin and faded. Actually my linens are faded, too but I love them so much that I want to keep using them. My ‘extra’ linens are solid colors and oh, how I love these beautiful pink flowers.
I looked through my stash of fabric and my eyes fell on this old sheet that I had cut apart to make an apron. There was just enough left to make 2 pillowcases.
They have been washed several times and are smooth and soft. Perfect for ‘new’ pillowcases. I even made them a little longer, the way I like them.
Here’s my bed made up with some boughten pillowcases….vintage of course!
Don’t you love that sunshine streaming in?
