Old pieces, when accumulated, can turn into clutter. Take control of your space by selecting pieces that can still be recycled. If you have old pillow covers with interesting prints and designs, you can turn it into a unique envelope which you can then use to organize bills and receipts.

Once done, you can add this piece to your home office or study area.

DIY inspired by Craft a Doodle Doo.

  • Lay the pillowcase horizontally on a flat surface.

  • Secure the areas with pins and start sewing them together using a needle and string. You may also use fabric glue if you want.
