Pillowcase Dress Adventure
I couldn't bring myself to actually use a real pillow case so I just have gone through my fabric collection and have been having a ball seeing the transformations. I have also created my own bias tape bindings for the armholes ( this reinforces the strength of the armhole) and for the ties. Creating my own bias tape has saved me money, became another solution to use up the scraps, and gave me an excuse to finally be able to use my Simplicity Deluxe bias and piping machine. That thing is awesome. Another item I made with the leftover scraps were scrunchies to match the dresses. I did that for the one I created for my granddaughter.
So if you were looking for ideas to utilize your scraps from a project, here a few depending on the amount that you have left over:
Small tote bag
Headscarf (bandana style)
zipper pouch purse or pencil case
If you can think of other items that you can create to further make use of your fabric project leftovers please feel free to share.
Signing off for now,
