 Pillow Cases. After realising that the divine but out of my price range Castle linens where not coming my way by my willpower alone I decded I had to get to it and do something about the lust myself. After all, how hard can a pillow case be? Errrr... Quite? For starters I did it off an old pillow case that had a tear in the seam. I picked it apart and just um... cut around it straight onto my new fabric... No, I didnt even pin it in place. Yes, I am extrordinarily impatient (you could also say lazy) when it comes to sewing. Anyway, I did it. The spotty ones were easier as I could follow the rows of spots to get my lines straight (sending me just a little cross eyed!). Just no one turn them inside out and inspect the seams! Ha! Look they even have fancy folds in them and a hood to keep the pillow in. Am planning on adding spotty buttons to the grey ones... Just as soon as I can work out how to do button holes!
Oh, and clearly I don't iron. Actually, we dont even own an ironing board!

More creative Spaces here.


  1. Cute, I've been meaning to some funky pillowcases for our room, for ages!! There's just too many projects ahead of them on 'to do' list. I hate ironing too!

  2. I made out pillow cases because I too was appalled at linen prices! I love sleeping on them :)

    The only ironing board we own is for my sewing/crafting purposes :)
