Bedroom makeover take two
It doesn't seem that long ago that I gave the bedroom an update. However, I got a bit tired of that look and decided it was time for something fresher. Some new white bedlinen would made everything look bright I thought. No problems buying that, but when I started looking for tailored pillowcases I got a very rude shock. $180 for two pillowcases! You have to be joking. Then I asked myself, as I was getting up from the floor in the manchester department (where the shock had sent me), why am I even looking at these things. I can sew and a pillowcase must be one of the simplest things to make. So I bought a relatively inexpensive white single bed sheet and got busy on the sewing machine. It was not long before I had two tailored pillowcases for a fraction of the cost.
