Wow! I love it! That is sooo darn cute. I have a buttload of pillowcases begging to made into something and I'm kinda sick of making skirts: http://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=8;action=display;threadid=32

Your instructions are really nice. I can't wait to check out the rest of your site.

Thanks for sharing this idea!

ahhh! i love lekkner! I check it all the time, although I've never ordered because I'm from canada, and money orders are a pain, and I don't have a credit card.

that shirt is too cute!

That is such a nifty idea, thanks for the how-to's! I want to make me one, but I am also thinking I could use the same idea to make dresses for my daughters, there are so many cute kids pillowcases that would really look fantastic as cool comfy dresses, or they could also use them as a beach/pool cover-up.
