Here is some easy to make romantic and ruffled pillow cases
I came across some old..new pillow cases at an estate sale
I decided to give them a romantic make over. I started with the ruffled ones.
I took strips of fabric 5" wide and 6 ft long for EACH pillow case.
I hemmed each piece
Then gathered them
I pinned the right side of the fabric to the right side of the pillow case right at the pillow case hem line so I could use this as a nice straight sewing line.
Leaving a little extra fabric at the edge.
Sew your ruffle on until you get to where the ruffle meets, then sew your ruffle together. It is so hard to gage exactly how long your ruffle should be. If you knew exactly, you could sew the ruffle together and then sew it on....I am not that good!
Sew it together
Then sew it down. Since you sewed the right sides of the fabric facing each other you end up with this nice finished seam when you are done.
Now do the same with your lace and TADA!
These were 2 new Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic pillow cases
Love ya Rachel, but these needed just a little something. I tore some strips of light weight cotton fabric.
Then sewed them right along the hem seam
So there you have it, some bad photography and 3 ruffled pillow cases.
I have never sold new pillow cases in my booth, only vintage embroidered. I have no idea how well they will sell.
Has anyone ever sold new pillow cases in their booth?
If they do sell, this would be a fun new item to add to our booths or online stores, I have seen tons of pillows for sale, but no pillow cases. I will let you know how well they sell.
I have no idea how to price them. I was thinking between $12-$18 for a pair, what do you think?
You guy's are the best!! Thank You!
Oh...the table...Nope still got it!!
