My Grandma used to do this ALL the time, made numerous pillowcases and also did embroidery on the crazy quilts she would do. I have one she made for me out of velvet/satin and silk. All from used fabrics that she got from 2nd hand stores and from friends. She also made wool quilts from my uncles old Pendleton shirts. He would get a new one every xmas, shirt that is. He wore them all the time and they would get terribly worn as he worked cattle and did haying. AND his german shorthair , Lady, would chew them up when Uncle Jerry would leave her in the house alone :) which at times he had to do, altho he took her everywhere with him.
Take Care All, may you all have such good memories of friends and relatives and mementos from those days.... that is what I am doing is making mementos for my friends and relatives.
