Instead of trying to be clever and crafty I have decided to show you what I do with lots of my favourite thrifted pillowcases.
Thats right. I put them on my bed! As tempting as it is to cut them all up I have a few pillowcase rules. If it is predominantly white and comes up fresh and lovely after a good soak it goes in the linen cupboard to be used on a bed, usually my bed, or Lotties. Three of these ones are thrifted, and the two quilted ones were bought new. The pink and blue floral in the front is my favourite. The embroidery work on the other two thrifted ones is just amazingly beautiful. I can only dream of stitching up something so lovely.
And see the gorgeous old white marcella bedspread. It is a treasure passed on from Mr Bigs nana. We have three of them! All in perfect condition and so very special.
It has been a lovely week of pillowcases hosted by pip and kirsty. Go and see who else is playing along and all the wonderful pillowcase projects kirsty has kindly shared.
