Pillowcase Skirt Tutorial


STEP 1: CUT YOUR PILLOWCASE
First measure the desired length of your skirt and add 2 inches to it for the elastic casing. Cut the first piece. Then cut another piece 4 inches in height for the bag handles. The piece left over will make the bag. Sometimes the pillowcase is too short to make all three pieces, in which case you can leave out the handles.


STEP 2: MAKE THE SKIRT
Fold over the unfinished edge to make casing, sew, insert elastic, and voila, it's ready!


































STEP 3: MAKE THE BAG
First make the handles by folding the handle pieces into fourths and sew closed. Sew on to bag.
