I will be a vendor at an upcoming event and realized I needed an apron to hold all my stuff! So I went through my stash of vintage pillowcases to find ones that were not suitable to upcycle into a pillowcase dress (maybe too thin, had a flaw, etc).
Found so many adorable embroidered pillowcases just perfect for half aprons. I made a few, sorry, forgot to take pictures along the way on this project to share as I was so excited! I'm sure the aprons will look cuter on a model - laying flat is so boring, but wanted to show off my latest project.
Look for these in my Etsy shop for sale soon...
The event I'll be attending as a vendor is Posh Kids Consignment Sale on April 30th and May 1st in Loomis, CA. Go to www.poshkidscs.com to find out more details... (I'm not set up for credit cards at this kind of event, but take cash & checks).
Great idea to consign - repurpose, reuse, recycle!

I'm so thrilled - my sweet 'Daisey' vintage pillowcase dress was accepted in craftgawker and then 'Embroidered Basket' was accepted (updated post on March 31). It is an honor to be on the site with so many other beautiful handmade items. Thanks craftgawker!
Go see both dresses there at: http://craftgawker.com/post/archive/warmhugsdesign/

Harper turned one last week - here's the pillowcase style dress I made for her. It's Michael Miller's 'Lil Cowpokes' print and I've added a red hem. I used a brown ribbon that looks like a rope but is super soft. Hope she likes it!
