5 Craft Projects for Vintage Pillowcases

Crafting with reclaimed fabrics like vintage pillowcases helps give an old piece a new life while keeping your sewing projects more eco-friendly at the same time!

There’s something really special about vintage linens. The fabrics are lovely and soft from so many washings, and they’re obviously sturdy to have held up for so long. Their colors and patterns speak to their history, and every vintage piece has its own story to tell.

If you’ve been struck by the beautiful vintage pillowcases at your local thrift store but weren’t sure what to do with them, we’ve got a few projects for you!
