I made several of these this summer because they are quick and super easy to make. I used Handmade Home as a guide but changed the patter a little. I had to cut a great deal off the top and used it for a baby shower gift (see Baby Shower Gift post).
I like to make these because I can get a pillow case for less than a dollar at local thrift stores. The bias tape cost more than the pillow case.
This pillow case was originally a really light pink with a stain on it. I dyed it denim blue. Sweetpeaizer LOVES it! I will add pictures of the others when I take them.
