I Made a Pillowcase Dress!

I’m standing by my stance that I’m not crafty… But I’m taking a stab at new crafts as a part of my apparent nesting craze.

I’m not going to post a DIY for this one right now, I’m sure you could google and find lots of tutorials. I like this tutorial on Baby Rabies, but it’s a little different than the one I made since I added more frill and ribbon. I found her tutorial after I made mine and quite honestly I kinda just “wong it” with this one and didn’t follow measurements or a pattern besides holding it up to a couple of other dresses I’ve bought for her.

Not bad for my first one but I’m going to make another attempt soon!I was hoping it would come out about 3 month-size but it’s really small, more like newborn size. So hopefully she’ll be more around 7lbs when she’s born and not like her more than 10lb daddy! We’ll see!

Promise the next one I make (if it’s cuter) I’ll post all my own DIY instructions so you can make your own pillowcase dress!

What do you think? Like it?

Super, duper cute! You did a great job. And thanks for linking to my tutorial. I’m going to have to add some extra frills and ribbons to my next one like you did.

This is a great job, Future Mama. I can say you’ve found your new vocation, making cuties baby stuff. I love it. Oh I want to that ASAP!;) Good job really, well done I really love it. Oh, I can start by doing it for the house, but just when I finish my studies. 🙂 xxxMsBabyPlan

Very very cute! Great job for just winging it!

That’s really impressive! That came out really well! I love the ribbon you used! I don’t even own a sewing machine…

It turned out well for your first attempt. Operating a sewing machine is challenging in and of itself.


Amy says:

I’m very impressed! I really have no sewing abilities…I think I need to learn those before I become a wife myself in July 2011.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Happy SAT sharefest, I am so late in visit my RockNRoll blogs.

Check out my new blog design, it so cool I want to share it with everyone :)!

My baby-making days are over, but I have several friends who are pregnant, and this is a great idea for a baby gift! I never would have thought of making a dress out of a pillowcase. Genius!
And your first attempt is beautiful, too!

I’ve seen tons of pillowcase dresses – I like yours the best! That’s my kind of style. Arlene

Erectile Dysfunction FAQ’s

Impotence, or penile erectile dysfunction, in men is not as rare as one would think it is.
In fact, one out of ten men around the world is affected by this condition. It is not exclusive to old men either. Impotence is caused not just by physical factors,
but mental factors as well.
Exercising on a regular basis and eating healthy food will increase your ability to sustain prolonged physical effort and we all know that sex is effort.
Smoking, frequently drinking large quantities of alcohol, taking recreational drugs and lack of exercising will sap your stamina and also slow down the flow of blood.
Penis exercises can be used for maintaining fitness, preventing or controlling premature ejaculation and increasing the length and girth of the penis.
by penis enlargement pills you can overcome these problems and not only that you can also enlarge, extend also to strengthen your penis and premature ejaculation will not exist anymore for you.

Thank you for helping out, good info. “Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.” by Tallulah Bankhead.

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
