the lovely pillowcases

I am absolutely addicted to making these pillowcases. They are so much fun and super easy.
Here's how I made them.. I used premium muslin from Joann's. It was 108'' wide and about 11.99 a yard. I'll have to say it is worth every penny. The muslin washes up soft and wrinkly just like vintage linens. My mom was convinced I found old pillowcases to embroider on. I can get two pillowcases per yard. A few of the designs came from this book.  I took from a few vintage pillowcases to come up with the zinnia design and for the 
star wars... I traced it from cookie cutters.

more to come...

  1. How do you transfer the pattern to be stitched onto the pillow case?
