Crochet Edged Pillowcases - A Finished Project

Vicki Crochets too!!

After the quilted pillowcases I blogged about here  I went for a change of pace and made some simple pillowcases with some pretty fabrics I had to hand and set about adding some embellishments:

The first has this beautiful purple floral fabric on the front with a coordinating lilac tone on tone print on the back, it is finished with a green scalloped edge which highlights the green in the print.

I enjoyed the change of pace, sitting and relaxing with a crochet hook.

The second has a simple blue and green floral on the front with a tone on tone green for the backing.  This is finished with a matching blue scallop.

I haven't picked up a crochet hook for a while and trying to remember some patterns for the crochet border to make each different was the most taxing part of this project!

Finally a beautiful blue with orange and pink flowers with a coordinating orange baking and a simple cream wave for the crochet.

All of the fabrics have small simple  prints, are reversible and will add a pop of colour to any bed.

All materials used - fabric, thread and crochet yarn are 100% cotton.

I can't wait to see some of these being used!

I''ve linked this post to the following linky parties:

Thank you for popping by,


  1. These are great - they remind me of pillowcases that I grew up with. Am I dating myself? :)

  2. I love making pillowcases and I do know how to crochet but have never learned to do this edging. This would be a good winter project for me! blessings, marlene
