Linen Burlap Pillow Cases - Man Style!
I am slowly but surely finishing the bedroom linens for my DD's boyfriend. I had some linen burlap fabric left over from the window treatments - just enough to do these pillow cases. I didn't have enough for traditional shams but wanted something decorative for the bed.
I found the inspiration on Pinterest. Here is the original link.
I chose to use larger grommets and rope, and I'm happy with the result. I didn't have a fluffy pillow for the insert, so I used a flat pillow instead. I have the bottom rolled under to eliminate the fullness. My grommets are even I promise! lol
I had some trouble with the rope unraveling. I tried burning the ends, fray checking them and gluing them. None of those worked.
Let me know if you have questions.
