A Herbaceous Pillowcase

I finally got a pillow-case finished. Fortunately for me, my length of fabric was the correct width, so all I had to do was cut it to the right length.  Unlike Chad’s pillowcase,  I don’t have a double-layer of fabric on the end.  I would have had enough fabric, but I wanted to be able to cut out some quilt blocks.  So I economised, and did an ordinary hem.   The rick-rack is vintage, and made of super-soft *cotton*.  We got it (and a bunch of other great stuff) out of a Good-Will grab bag. Do you realise how hard it is to *find* cotton notions nowadays? You have to purchase it special: Jo-Ann’s doesnt’ carry it.

The fabric is “Brooke’s Garden, for Red Rooster Fabric’s”, and is very soft, with a lovely heft and drape.    I actually slept on this last night: It felt lovely.

One pillow-case down, and three (maybe five) to go!
