Purple Pillow Case

I’m sorry if this Purple Project is a bit late today, but as some of you know, I have a thyroid problem and I ran out of my thyroid vitamins before my new ones arrived.  I was rationing them for a while (down to 1/4 dose for a wk) then totally ran out about a week ago.  I was so tired that I spent most of the last week on the couch unable to get up even to eat.

My vitamins arrived a few days ago and I’m feeling better, but still not 100%.  I have a fair amount of Fibro pain in my joints and it is still a bit difficult to breathe properly as my thyroid is enlarged again.  I also had my insomnia kick in, but a little iodine is an amazing thing and I am feeling better each day.

I have to admit that today’s Purple Project isn’t the one I had planned because I wasn’t able to get out to buy the things I needed.  However I have a nice project for you that I had forgotten to do earlier.  I had a yellowing pillow case that I never used.  It looked old and didn’t match anything I had. It was also fairly plain.  So I dressed it up a bit.  Here is the before picture:

And here is the after picture:

All I did was dye the pillow case purple. I crinkled it up in the dye so it wouldn’t dye evenly and created a random pattern.  Then I glued on purple buttons using Puff Paint in glitter silver to accent the purple color.

It’s really easy to do!  Please share a picture of this craft when you do it, or share a picture where you had attempted any of The Purple Projects so far!

Have a GRAPE Day!
