Sure, there are MANY things you can make from an old pillowcase but today we will be making.......a garment bag! SO cute and SO easy!!
You will need one pillowcase, scissors, needle and thread. You can also use some ribbon to accent once finished but that is optional.
Let's get started! This first step is VERY important! First, turn your pillowcase inside out. Then, simply fold your pillowcase in half width-wise
You are now going to cut a small slit just below the stitching. 1/2 - 1 inch will be perfect.
Unfold your pillowcase, it should look something like above.
Next you are going to thread your needle and stitch around the opening to make sure the fabric will not fray. Once finished turn your new garment bag right side out and there you have it! How easy was that?!? You may add ribbon for an extra touch if you would like.
I love going to places like goodwill, or my local antique stores, to find really cute old pillowcases. These garment bags are perfect to place over winder coats for storing, dance costumes, cheer uniforms, your children's special clothes and so much more!
