Ken Wingard recently went on Home & Family to demonstrate how you can transform a pillowcase into a child’s dress:
How to Turn a Pillowcase Into a Child’s Dress
Ken Wingard shows you how to make a child’s dress using a pillowcase using thread, ribbon and a sewing machine. When you are done measuring, you can add extra ribbon where you desire for decoration. If you are looking for an unusual pattern, vintage pillowcases work perfectly. This entire DIY will cost you only $6-$8.
• Pillow case
• Sewing machine
1) Get your pillowcase, fold in half lengthwise, and you’re going to make 3 cuts. One on to for the length, a J-shape on the side for the armhole, and a long skinny cut on the bottom corner up to the J to taper it.
2) Do a hem along armholes. Then put the 2 halves face to face and seam up the sides. On top where neck is, fold it over to made a pocket, then run a ribbon through it.
*You can make them as crazy as you want to be, with extra ribbon, little embellishments, or even beading.
Home & Family airs weekdays at 10 am ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.
