i made these from a pair of pillow cases i had bought at savers in little rock, ar one time on one of my jaunts there with jerusalem. i struggled with the idea of whether to actually use them as pillowcases since there were 2 of them. but decided i have enough of those for my actually pillows lets have fun with the cool vintage fabric.
i loosely followed a tutorial for the skirt from here. slight modifications but basically the same idea. then pieced together the extra i had trimmed from the folded over cuffs of the pillowcases for the purse, adding in the eyelet lace and brown ribbon.
