Pillowcase Totes

I seem to have collected quite a few pillowcases. I have been thinking about making tote bags out of them for a while now. This morning I finally got around to trying it. I made 4.

The lining is the same as the outer fabric. I did not use any interfacing because I'd like to be able to fold them up and put them in my purse for shopping.

I'm off to try to find more pillowcases!!

I have been doing the same thing - it's like a sickness once you start!

I have some recent ones on flickr -

I bought 2 of the big yellow/teal flowered pillowcases (for a grand total of 50 cents!) and made 4 bags out of them - they now go everywhere with me and are my shopping bags!

Feels so good to tell the clerk at a store you don't need a bag!

I love these bags!! So great and a creative way to use a pillow case. They are all so pretty. Now I need a reason to buy one..
