Acknowledge her difficult job with a bag made from a pillowcase. It will have her thinkin' of you when she wants to escape!
Step 1: Gather Materials
Needle and Thread (or sewing machine)
Mark the pillowcase diagonally and cut.
NOTE: If you want to make a run-away bag that appears finished /reversible, cut a second pillowcase the same way.
Step 2: Stitch the Raw Edges
NOTE: If making a run-away bag with a finished/reversible interior ...pin the pretty sides of the pillowcase together, and stitch the raw edges together at the diagonal (see pincushion). To reduce the bulk at the upper corner, trim before turning inside out. Proceed with the above* instructions.
Step 3: Connect the Two Triangles
Pin (or duct tape) where the two diagonals meet and stitch where the pinned sections overlap. Turn run-away bag over and repeat. Turn bag inside out and again, repeat.
Step 4: Knot at Top and .....
Witness your mother's joy...her escape is only moments away!
