Reversible PillowCase | Farmhouse Style | Cottage Style | Vintage Fabric | Shabby Chic | CreativeCainCabin.comAre you ever just in the mood to sew? Well I have been for quite some time, but it always seems like something else comes up and my sewing project get’s put on the back burner. Well I was determined this week, while hubby was out of town, to enjoy myself and make a few Reversible Pillowcases for the master bedroom. 

Reversible PillowCase | Farmhouse Style | Cottage Style | Vintage Fabric | Shabby Chic | CreativeCainCabin.comI’ve seen several different varieties all over Pinterest so I just had to narrow it down to what I liked best, what I had time for, and what worked with the fabric I had on hand.  

Reversible PillowCase | Farmhouse Style | Cottage Style | Vintage Fabric | Shabby Chic | CreativeCainCabin.comI have to admit I could become addicted to purchasing fabric, so I have to hold myself back. It’s so beautiful I just want it all. I’ve learned over time to only purchase if I have an actual project in mind. If I don’t handle it that way I would be overrun with pretty fat quarters and yardage everywhere. It’s sorta like chocolate to me….once I start I can’t stop.

My creativity was sparked when I received my new Farm Girl Vintage book in the mail. The pages are so yummy that I get lost in all the prettiness. I even took the book to bed with me and looked it over again, with my flashlight on, it just makes my heart happy to see all the different farmhouse quilt squares. 

Reversible PillowCase | Farmhouse Style | Cottage Style | Vintage Fabric | Shabby Chic | CreativeCainCabin.comI knew I wanted the pillowcases to have a vintage look to them, so I paired fabric together until I came up with the perfect color combination for each case. I do have to admit with making them reversible it makes for a pricey pillow case.

The trim doesn’t have to be used but I feel it gives it that vintage farmhouse feel I was going for. So by the time I was done each pillowcase came to about $22. Wow, that seems high but they are beautiful and I have to figure I’m getting 2 looks from each pillowcase.

I did limit myself to making 4 pillowcases, the amount of pillows we have on our bed. I will keep the king size pillows in white just because I like the look and contrast against the quilt.

After all it’s only a rectangle you can hardly go wrong. It makes me happy to crawl into bed everynight now. I wish I had someone to make some for, they’re quite fun and addictive, but at this time I don’t. So I will remember this when I need a gift in the future.

    I am a fabric nut as well and I usually get into the mood to sew when it is cold and rainy or snowy out. I put on some old Doris Day movies and let them play while I sew the day away. I love how these turned out! So cute and the combos work perfect.

      Pam I was thinking a good quilting project for this winter. I’ve always wanted to hand quilt and need to take the time to do it.

    Dawn, I would love to try this. I love the idea of them being reversible and also love the pretty trim you used. These would make great bridal shower gifts.

      Becky they would be great gifts for that. I think making a kid a blanket and a pillowcase could be the storage for the blanket would be cute too.

    Suggestion: follow a quarterly holiday or seasonal theme for the cases. Spring, easter, valentines day, etc. Makes great gifts.

    These turned out so lovely. Thanks for referring to my tutorial as well. I agree, it isn’t the most frugal way to make a pillowcase, but it is a fun one! Love your fabric selections.
