What can you make with a pillowcase?
As part of our 2021 Fall Fashion Focus, we challenge you to make a wearable item from a pillowcase! Anything goes, but you may get extra points if it’s Chanel-inspired!
We’ll be posting the occassional photo of library staff designs on Facebook and Instagram (and maybe even TikTok).
Other pillowcase challenges
- American Patchwork & Quilting has challenged quilt shops and sewists to make pillowcases for local charities. Their current count: 1,010,542! see their web page for pillowcase patterns and ideas for where to donate.
- Little Dresses for Africa is another charitable sewing opportunity. They collect dresses made from pillowcases or t-shirts and distribute them among African orphanages. They also give out sani-pantis, washable pads that help young women maintain their hygeine and their dignity. Info and patterns HERE.
