    Pillow cases/aprons

    Haven't been on the board much. Been buried in aprons and pillow cases. Thanks for looking.

    I really like your ideas for the pillowcases. Your aprons look great also.

    beautiful, really love those pillowcases.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Awesome! I especially love those pillowcases! Did you use a pattern for them? I have a little great-niece, who'd love to have something like that.

    Love those pillowcases!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Love your aprons and pillowcases. So did you design the patterns or where did they come form. Inquiring minds would like to know. Those pillow cases sure bring back a lot of memories.

    Wow! Really well done. I adore those pillow cases. Your own design on the pillowcases or can you share where we can get the pattern? Love your aprons too!

    Terrific pillow cases and I LOVE the aprons!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    A lady had a pillowcase that someone made her back in 76, I copied that one.

    Love the aprons. I am a very small person, and have little or no shoulders, so how would I need to adjust that pattern to have it stay around my neck instead of creating a lovely large pocket to catch whatever I am wearing an apron to keep from catching. They usually create a big mess from top to waist that I am trying to avoid. I have a lot of skirt front aprons, but want the bibs so I can keep things off my shirts when cooking. Can you advise?

    There's a tute for a modern type here http://www.mygirlthursday.com/2012/0...-inspired.html I guess you could just add a ruffle to it?
