Well you all know by now that I love crochet edge pillowcases.
I think my Daisy Cottage fabric is perfect for tons of crochet edge pillowcases...
so that's what I made!
"Crochet Edge Pillowcases"
Although I love the other method of sewing a buttonhole stitch with yarn around the pillowcase edge first...
it's a very time consuming process...
so I came up with my own simplified and
much faster version:)
I also designed a bit of Mr. and Mrs.
embroidery for the edges of
the gray solid pillowcases.
After all..what real cottage would be without Mr. and Mrs. pillowcases?
I love the look of the cotton crochet lace paired up with the embroidered scallops.
A nice comfy cottagey texture:)
I like it sew much that I made a pillowcase using every piece of fabric in my
Daisy Cottage line.
Each pillowcase only takes 1 yard of fabric and takes 1/2 hour to cut and sew...
and about 1 hour to crochet the edges.
I love them!!!
There are so many ways to pair up different combinations of fabric, yarn and lace.
I'm excited about this new pattern and it will be ready for release at the end of this week along with all of my others.
You can purchase it here.
Speaking of others...I have one more new pattern to show you.
Although the above picture has crochet edging...it's not a pillowcase.
What could it be?
If you know me at all...
I'll bet you guess it right away:)
That's right...an apron!
The "Daisy Apron"... to be exact.
With nice deep pockets...
and crochet scallop trim on the edge...
And a single row of crochet scallops across the bottom of the hem too.
Or maybe another without trim
on the pockets...
But with 2 rows of fluffy white rose trim along the bottom of the apron skirt.
The aprons have extra long ties for
tying a bow in the front.
And needs only 1 1/4 yards of fabric and are simple to make.
I have more aprons to show you because there are a few more variations...
but I am simply out of time for today!
Thank you for all of your wonderful comments about my Daisy Cottage fabric
I have had a blast reading them and
I love hearing from you.
You are who I design for!
The giveaway for the Daisy Cottage fat quarter bundles and new patterns will end at midnight (my time) tonight.
