Pillowcase Challenge

I finally got my hands on this book, Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase.  After seeing Michelle post about it, I had to get a copy and share my excitement. Thank you Michelle for sharing:)

I did two projects for this book that I am very excited about–the reversible sun hat and the simply red skirt.  It was great fun doing this and learning a bit of the process of getting something published.  Not as scary as I once thought. And it’s pretty incredible seeing your name printed in a book!


Even some follow bloggers that I “know”, like Bella Dia, Oh Fransson!, and Vintage Chica are in this great book.

The book itself has loads of great things to make.  Twenty-eight projects within categories such as Wear, Show and Live. I’m looking forward to trying the lounge pants, sunny lunchbox, crocheted bowl, baby quilt and maybe a dress or apron for my niece.  I definitely have enough pillowcases to work with.

Go check it out!!

    Congrats on being in the book. It looks like it has some great patterns in it.

  2. I’d love to know where I can get a copy of this book. I so want to make some of those cute little girl’s sundresses and that red skirt would be awesome for summer!

  3. It is available at Barnes&Noble ($19.99) and through Amazon ($13.57 + free shipping for orders over $25). There is a link in my post for Amazon.

    I’m planning on making a dress for my niece. There are 4 different dress variations! All are quite lovely.

    Oh, I made a reversible hat from a pattern
    that didn’t call for it to be reversible.
    I thought there should be a way to make it
    reversible. I think thought I don’t like
    the combo of materials so I am going to
    change them.

    I think I am going to have to check into
    getting the book. I want to make things
    with pillowcases.

    God Bless You and Yours
    and Your Creative Life!!!
