Tutorials for projects made from vintage pillowcases are popping up all over the Internet. Everywhere you look you will find tutorials for everything from dresses, nightgowns, tote bags, to laundry bags made from pillowcases can be found. Aprons made from vintage pillowcases, are also a very popular project with plenty of tutorials available on how to make them. Here are three of my favorite tutorials on making an apron from a pillowcase.
Craftster: Vintage Pillowcase Apron Tutorial
I found this pillowcase apron tutorial in the forums at Craftster, it was written by forum member Raina. The tutorial is actually much better than you would expect it to be since it is located on a forum. It has great step-by-step directions, along with plenty of pictures to show how to complete each step of the process.
What I really like about this particular pillowcase apron tutorial is that the only thing needed to make this project is the pillowcase, except for the two snaps needed to fasten the two pockets on the front of the apron.

Kitchen Clothesline: Vintage Pillowcase Apron Tutorial
Sally at Kitchen Clothesline shares her tutorial on how to make an apron from a vintage pillowcase on her blog, Kitchen Clothesline. What I like about Sally’s tutorial is the fact that you don’t really have to cut up your gorgeous vintage pillowcase to make this apron, as it’s made using simple folding and stitching. So with this apron if you ever decide that you want your beautiful vintage pillowcase back, all you have to do is rip out a few stitches, and unfold.
In addition to the pillowcase the only other material needed to make this apron is a few pieces of fabric for the straps. The tutorial itself is very easy to follow, with step-by-step instructions and plenty of pictures.
