Give an orphaned pillowcase a new home -- over your shoulder.

- Pinking shears
- Pillow case
Step 1 of 3
Trim 1/4 inch off the closed end, and cut the case in half on the diagonal. Turn the fabric of each of the four diagonal cut edges over by 1/4 inch, twice; pin, and hem.
Step 2 of 3
Place one pillowcase half inside the other, lining up bottom edges; pin, and sew at front where fabrics overlap. Repeat on other side. Turn fabric inside out, and hem case's cut bottom.
Step 3 of 3
Trim with pinking shears. Turn case right side out, tie top ends into a knot, and you have a carefree summer bag.
