9 Things to Make with a Pink Pillowcase

It's time for a pink roundup. Here are 9 things that you can make with a pink vintage sheet or pillowcase.


Most of the items come with a tutorial. To learn more and pin,  click on the links below the pictures to visit the creators' blogs.


I love making baby items from thrifted pillowcases and sheets because they are so soft. I love this little baby skirt from thrifted sheets. Amanda's tutorial makes it really simple.

This romper is so cute, I could scream! I love Erin's tutorial for this baby romper from a vintage pillowcase. I need my bff to have another baby girl so I can make one. Sewing for babies is so fun.

I like to make party decorations and favors that can be treasured for years. I threw a Pretty in Pink baby shower for my bff and made this bunting with new and vintage fabrics for the party which now hangs in her little girl's room.




These are the fun mini pillow and pillowcase birthday party invitations that I made for my niece a few years ago. The girls loved them so much that they kept them for their Monster High dolls. Most of the party decorations and favors were made from a single vintage sheet.

Sometimes craft supplies can be really pricey and they are mass-produced boring. It's so inexpensive and much cuter to make your own supplies. Learn from Melissa how to make ruffles out of vintage sheets.

My name is Heather and I am addicted to bias tape. I love it! Stephanie makes really cute buntings and other things wither her own homemade bias tape from vintage sheets.

This is a fun warm weather top on the Colletterie website. She used a new cotton fabric but I think a pink vintage sheet would work perfectly with this top. While you are are there, check out all the amazing patterns for beginning sewers.

I like big bags, I cannot lie. This rag style diaper bag is so precious. Donna has a really cute matching quilt, too.

I love this quilted tote made from leftover quilt fabric. Love using those scraps. And, it has pockets!

These handmade coasters are a great way to keep water rings off of your table. They would also make a great little gift. There is a very easy tutorial from Ashley Ann.

Making quilts from vintage sheets just makes sense. This is the sweetest pink vintage sheet quilt. I love the ease of a quilt made from strips.

I love this pink quilt too. It's a bolder pink but still very girly. Click the link to see some other very pretty quilts from Amanda.

I love using thrifted items to make pillow covers. Throw pillows are such an easy and fun way to change up the look of a room. I love Leah's Holly Hobby pillow cover. It totally reminds me of my childhood.

I think Karoline's apron was one of the first things I pinned with my Vintage Sheet Blog Pinterest account 3 years ago. I just love the layers of vintage pillowcases.

I love aprons so much. This one from Terry is so amazing. I just love everything about it.

Finally, I'm going to end with a pink 10 Minute Apron. I love the pink roses. Come to think of it, all 3 of my favorite pink aprons have roses. Hmmm.

Wow what cute (and creative ideas) I love that baby romper it's adorable! I think I need to work on my sewing skills a little because all I can do is sew on a button.
