5 Craft Projects for Vintage Pillowcases

5. Child’s Pillowcase Dress

Turning a pillowcase into a dress is nothing new, but this video tutorial from Made by Marzipan really takes this concept to the next level. I love the ruffled bib and the button details, don’t you? Not only do I love this finished product, but it looks like she uses pretty much the whole pillowcase to create this look, which means you’re creating very little waste with this pillowcase dress.
