A hint of what’s to come………..

Yup….another pillowcase idea. First, to address a question of the size/width of the pillowcase/hanger that was used. IMG_0085_LI (2) The case was 18.5” and the hanger 16.5”. The next may be different.

I’ve selected 2 cases…..1 has a wonderful embroidery & piping at the “cuff” but plain on the hem edge.IMG_0164             The other has a gorgeous lace edging in blue variegated thread but no other embellishments. IMG_0165           So…how about combining them???? IMG_0166   These were purchased at an antique shop and were quite reasonably priced. There was only 1 of the embroidered case but 2 of the lace edged one, so there’s a future project possibility~stay tuned………..

    Found my way here via Beth Anne (It’s Just Life). Your work is so beautiful! I’m planning to visit again when I have more time to look at your posts.

    I’m wondering . . . What are you doing about cutting the ‘lace’? It looks like hand crochet in the pics, and I know that if you just cut into hand crochet, it will ravel like crazy. How are you able to get around that problem? Asking because I have a couple of pillowcases made by my grandmother, and I don’t want to ruin the lace edgings.
