Pillowcase Garment Bag

Source: Martha Stewart Kids, Volume 3 2002


Convert a pretty pillowcase into a garment bag for Easter coats, party suits, or out-of-season clothing. It's wise to store clothes in cloth rather than plastic, since plastic doesn't allow moisture or cleaning chemicals to evaporate.



  • Pillowcase

  • Needle

  • Thread

  • Hanger


  1. Turn a pillowcase inside out; on the closed end, remove some of the stitches at the center to create a one-inch-wide hole. Tack with needle and thread on either side of hole to reinforce stitching and keep it from opening further. Turn right side out, and slide a hanger through the hole.
