Cozy pillowcases

sewing 002

Almost as all-consuming as my love of quilts and blankets is my love of beautiful pillowcases. These are all made from vintage sheets, and crocheted in cotton for a deliciously girly edging.

I think they look so fantastic with that quilt! Just the right mix of fancy and homespun.

How about these?

These are quieter—they remind me of the beautiful, soft linoleum block art of Gwen Frostic (who was from my home state of Michigan, so I feel like I knew her—I didn’t—love you, Gwen!)

These look like something Anne would have had in her bedroom at Green Gables.


Sweet dreams.
