With that all said, I found these beauties today while out doing an errand. Oh, aren’t they special?
So, there is one other little detail. I am a bit of a germaphobe. I get a little skittish thinking that someone else’s drooling mouth might have been on these lovelies. I came home and soaked them in half strength vinegar, leaving the embroidered part out of the bucket.....no one drools on embroidery, do they? Then, I washed them by hand, hung them out to dry, washed them AGAIN when I noticed that they got all black on the back of them from blowing in the wind and hitting the blackened cords of my outside clothesline. You can tell I use it.....often. After washing them twice, and trying to get a barely perceptible perfumey smell out them.....I dried them for a little bit, and ironed the heck out of them. I bet most cooties die under the heat of a steam iron, that’s what I keep telling myself.
What I love the most is the crochet edging. LOVE IT!!! Does anyone know of a good tutorial site for such edging? I would love to add that to quilts and such.....
I still haven’t decided if I am going to use these for stuffing my pillows into....or will I disassemble them and add that wonderful edging to a sewing project. I have seen some really neat things done with this, like, along the bottom of a skirt, or on a jacket or purse.
I’m exhausted.....too much pillowcase buying for one day.
