Coloring Sheet Pillowcase

The DIY Coloring Sheet pillowcase was my entry into the “ink” challenge over at SoYouThinkYou’reCrafty.  It was down to the top 3 and competition was tight.

I got the idea because my girls have been obsessed with intricate coloring pages – see:

So I grabbed a pillowcase and a thin-point sharpie and a hard surface (clipboard) to stick in the pillowcase so the sharpie didn’t bleed through.

And turned on a no-brainer (requires no thought) show – anyone know which one it is??

And started drawing…

Obviously I’m no artist.  But the kids don’t care.  At first I thought they’d color it in with fabric markers, to make it stay.  But then I thought, why make it stay!  I should make this thing reusable.

I thought washable markers would wash out, so I tested it and I was right!

Pretty fun, huh?!?  I bet older girls at a slumber party would even love to draw out the designs themselves, then maybe swap pillowcases and color each others’ in or something.

Such a fun thing that I though it deserved an infomercial: Color It In, Again and Again!!  – – in fact, over spring break my girls came up with one, and I recorded it to show you, but now we can’t find the video camera – of course!

    For one of my daughter’s birthday parties I made some pillow cases and I let them trace some Disney pictures on them. Then I had them color with crayons, and use paper to iron in the color. Then they traced the pencil marks with a sharpie. It was a fun project for a party.
