Crochet Along Success

Thanks Cassie for the time you invested in your wonderful Crocheted Pillowcase Tutorials. It was a great success and I'm loving my pillowcases. I'm just getting around to posting the results of my efforts. I have three pillowcases that are done and the other two are just about there.

I made two green pillowcases for my Kenna and I.

This fun floral print pillowcase I made for my grandaughter.

I made two of these pillowcases for the soon to be married couple.

Just 23 days and counting...

It's coming too fast...

I'm in worry mode at the moment.

Those are really cute. I love the fabric and the fact that you added the crocheting around the edge makes them that much more special. I'm sure the newlyweds will love them!

Michelle said...

Adorable, love them...can't wait til I get time to make some myself. Thanks for the post earlier about them I went and checked it all out and did a post on my blog, so much fun to share all this creativity.

What a multitalented lady you are! I have a couple that were embroidered for our wedding but the crocheting was never done by anyone! They still sit after almost 28 years in my unfinished projects file. I should just sew lace on them and use them. Do I remember right that you have a daughter getting married? It's hard to see them grow up but oh so rewarding. I have a son and daugther who are both married. My daughter just gave us our second granddaughter (her second daughter) and they certainly make life a lot brighter! Good luck to you on getting through the next 23+ days and adjusting to the new normal. Hopefully you can take a couple of days after the wedding to regroup and re-energize yourself! Cindy

Hi Kim...
I love love love them and I know they were fun to do because I did 4 of them too!
I just havn't posted about them yet.
Kassidy really wanted to do them because she has been wanting to learn...so I thought it was the perfect time to teach her.
Wow...only 23 days...keep on keepin on!

Those are beautiful. I'm so impressed. Crocheting and knitting are just some of things I don't ever dare attempt. You did an amazing job.

Just having a little browse,Kim, have found your blog and just love it - I see we have quite a few mutual friends - isn't it nice to be judged by the company one keeps!
Hugs - Lurline♥

The pillowcases turned out so nice! I have done the same with shirts and blankets. I have yet to venture into pillowcase embellishment. I may have to jump in and do it for my girls. I think hubby would give me strange looks if I edged the ones we use. I think he's adverse to frilly bedding.
