Well, I decided to have a go at making a frilly pinny using the duvet cover from the other day. I wasn't sure about the size, so I held one of the pillowcases up in front of me to get an idea. It suddenly struck me that I could just adapt the pillow case by cutting the end off and attaching a waistband and ties. I also added a pocket with a frill on. The beauty of using the pillowcase is it's double thickness and as well as a frill it's got ribbon all the way round so looks quite posh. Because I used the pillowcase on end so to speak, the flowers are going sideways but as my Mum used to say " A blind man on a galloping horse won't notice." :0)
Of course I've still got all the other frill to use, and another pillowcase.
I've been making a couple of brooches too
