Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase - It's Here!

I'm just so excited to share with you my first entry into the world of publishing. I couldn't stand it any longer and got tired of waiting for my copy from Lark Books, so I went ahead and ordered myself a copy. I was thrilled to find my apron on the inside front cover as well as the back cover! It's the "Layer Cake Apron" and the only apron in the book which surprised me a little. I love the way they photographed each of the aprons.
The entire book is very pretty as well. It's very fresh and perfect for spring just around the corner. I'm also really excited to try several of the projects in the book. There are 3 different styles of the pillowcase dress, a cute adult robe, adult tunic which can be made as a child's dress as well, lounge pants, several bags and other cute accessories for your home.

I've done a little background reading on several of the designers in the book and I have to say that I believe that I am in fine company. Many of them have Etsy sites which I intend to check out and several have blogs which are on my reading list.
