pillow case totebag

I saw a project in last month’s Martha Stewart: making a totebag out of a pillowcase. And I just happened to have a pillow case lying around that I had been wanting to do something with for a while. It’s the green version of the pink one I used a few months back to make an apron….

Anyhow, I took my green pillow case and 4 steps later, I had a bag! I made a few changes to the pattern. Instead of sewing the outside diagonals, I sewed the inside ones, but then I sewed the outside ones halfway, ending up with two pockets.
