Pillow Talk

pillow case for pjs

mmm pillow talk! LOL ok Really now!

Backstory: Memorial Day, Savers had a 50% off of everything. I am always looking for great furniture and princess dresses for my biz, and always grab something for my humongous baby that wears clothes 2 sizes to big for her age ("Your baby's so fat she wears plus size diapers.") As I am walking past the pillow cases I see poppies peeking out at me. I'm a sucker for poppies...California dreamin'. So I take a looksie and guess what?! There are 2 of them and they are king sized and they are "Vera!" oh and 50¢ !!! How cool is that. They are so beautiful, no marks or wear or anything...just how you want to find used pillow cases.

And maybe you'd think, hey make a cute pillow case dress for one of your gingers. But nah! I'm making myself a pair of pj pants. And the best thing? The hem and side seams are already done. Here's how I'll cut it out, fyi:

Each case will make one leg. If anyone really wants to know how to do this, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

CUTE!!!! I bet you could even use regular pillowcases and make cute capri/short pj pants. How fun. I bought a bunch at that sale too and just bought two more yesterday while waiting for Miss S to finish ballet. I need to go through them and see if I have two matching ones to make some pjs:)

I love poppies. Those are amazing, especially the price. I really like the idea of making them into pj's. I'd love to see the finished product and if you wanted to run through how you did it, even better.
