Vintage Inspired Pillowcase

Vintage Inspired Pillowcase with Bird

Due to the recent excitement about using thrifted and vintage pillowcases for decorating and for making pretty little pillowcase dresses, I've sewn up some pillowcases with vintage-inspired and feedsack fabrics like this one and embroidered a perky little bird on the left bottom corner specifically placed for a pillowcase dress. If you're nice and trim, it would be a cute summer skirt!

I love using this scalloped edge as I have on tea towels. I may have to actually make a pillowcase dress for my little niece who is turning one in May. As soon as she is walking, I am going to have her as my own little model.
