Cute!! You are a wonder Annie!!
Love, Aunt Jenny


Hi Annie, I bought a great apron from you once and check your blog from time to time. I see you like to reuse things, and came across these two ideas from Martha Stewart. I don't know if you can put these on your blog (copywright stuff?) but figured you might like the ideas!

Pillowcase Garment Bag:
Convert a pretty pillowcase into a garment bag for Easter coats, party suits, or out-of-season clothing. Turn a pillowcase inside out; on the closed end, remove some of the stitches at the center to create a one-inch-wide hole. Tack with needle and thread on either side of hole to reinforce stitching and keep it from opening further. Turn right side out, and slide a hanger through the hole.

Give an orphaned pillowcase a new home -- over your shoulder.

1. Trim 1/4 inch off the closed end, and cut the case in half on the diagonal. Turn the fabric of each of the four diagonal cut edges over by 1/4 inch, twice; pin, and hem.

2. Place one pillowcase half inside the other, lining up bottom edges; pin, and sew at front where fabrics overlap. Repeat on other side. Turn fabric inside out, and hem case's cut bottom. Trim with pinking shears. Turn case right side out, tie top ends into a knot, and you have a carefree summer bag.
