Here are a couple skirts I've made recently. I upcycled pillow cases for both.



I used two pillow cases and a little bit of white fabric and elastic to create this skirt. It has different kinds of cartoon hearts all over it. The print kinda reminds me of Adventure Time. Smiley!




I only had one pillow case for this skirt, so I added some side panels in pink to go with it. The pillow case has a sweets print with lollipops, cupcakes, donuts, milkshakes, hearts and polka dots on a lavender background. I added a pink and red sequin bow applique for a little cute touch. I think it came out soooooo adorable!

Both skirts are pleated with an elastic waistband to make them more one-size-fits-most. Nothing too complicated but I really like the cute prints!
I hope you enjoyed my mini update. Hopefully I'll do some more sewing soon so I can post more. Tongue!
Happy crafting, everyone! <3!

Great idea! I see lots of pillow case skirts and think 'I'd never wear that, that's too small! I never thought to just use a matching pair!
