Pillow covers with strips of bedlinnen was something I wanted to try. I was not scared that it was difficult to weave, it was more that it would look like rubbish and that was something I certainly didn’t want.

In my previous blogpost I wrote about weaving with strips of sheets. Here are 2 new pillow covers which were made with strips of bedlinnen. It was fun doing and making pillow covers of them wasn’t quite that difficult. I just had to make sure my edges were secured so the strips wouldn’t come loose.

I often go to the Swedish secondhand store Erikshjälpen. They have a lot of second hand stuff like furniture, clothing and multi-media. Fortunately for me they also have a lot of weaving equipment like looms, shuttles and (of course) yarn. So I bought a whole bag of balls with strips of bedlinnen.

I still have a lot more balls of bedlinnen strips, so I guess I need to make more of these stylish and modern looking pillow covers. What to you think ? Do you like them ?
