I made this purse by cutting the pillow case into strips and sewing the raw edges of each strip under, I also used pink fabric and cut it into strips in the same way. I wove them all together and then sewed it together to create a purse.

It is very unique, and very pretty looking.  Your materials go very nicely together.

You really turned it into something different! I wouldn't have even guessed you used a pillowcase! Very pretty!
