Vintage Pillowcase Redux

I had a pair of vintage pillowcases that needed to become something new!
I debated for a little while on whether it should be curtains or pajama pants for Avery. Since i could not figure out where i would hang said curtains you can see the pj's won the debate! She got all kinds of sassy when it came time to model them. And wore them as soon as they came off the sewing machine!
I sewed a little loop of ribbon into the back of the pants so she could tell front from back in the homemade jammies. I saw this on some ingenious sewing blogger's blog, but can't remember where now. I still have one pillowcase left. What am i going to do with it? Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Hey--I was planning on making some this weekend--but from a sheet because this bottom requires more than a pillowcase...:) Cute and more cuteness--love them!
I saw this idea for a pillowcase summer top just yesterday and was seriously considering it....

Cute and one of my favorite colors and flowers. I think the ribbon in the back is a nifty idea.

i am with you there Mary...i have a sheet on my sewing table waiting for me...i am just planning on tracing my old favorite jammies that are falling apart and then winging them together.

well you could always use it as a part of one of your quilts... but a top to match would be cool. I love the pants though - SUPER CUTE!
