Hmmmmm.... What to do with an old pillowcase?

I have a number of wonderful printed vintage pillowcases waiting for something....

and I finally have some ideas!  

I am gathering them on this post so that I can remember them all, and also to share.  The ideas are not mine, so please note the origin, but I love all of them, and they are certainly worth sharing.  Enjoy!!!

I love this pillowcase laundry bag from here:

or how about a ten minute pillowcase apron, from Betz White: (I had a set of twin size sheets just like this print that I slept upon as a child, I wonder if my mom still has those????)

A pillowcase skirt for your precious little girl? Find the tutorial here.

Enough ideas to get your creative juices flowing?  I know mine certainly are... happy sewing!
