Handmade Pillow Cases!

Handmade Pillow Cases!

I don’t know why, but bed linens have been a current obsession of mine. It might have something to do with the apartment make-over that has been going on since hubby and I have decided to stay here for another year, and subsequently started re-doing both bedrooms in the house to make room for the baby (Unfortunately baby does not get her own room because we must have our office space in the apartment. There will be a long post about the office/nursery makeover when the final touches have been made!). I found myself ironing my sheets for the first time ever yesterday, and pining over these pillowcases made by Rose Hip I discovered through decor8:

I LOVE the crochet/knit combined with woven fabrics, which means the borders are what I am probably most attracted too, and what looks like the most fun to make. And don’t they look lovely and crisp all stacked on top of each other?! I must make a mental note to attempt to make some of these with prints that match my bed! It just seems like so much fun! Of course these are very girly. I love me some super saccharine sweet things, but I’m trying to get that look out of our bedroom for the sake of helping hubby really enjoy his space (I’m lucky he generally likes what I do around the house, and gives a constructive opinion often, but I especially like it when he loves it, and feels like he has a nice space he can enjoy and relax in), so I think I’ll try something inspired by these, but with bolder prints.

If you love these pillowcases, don’t forget to check out her Etsy site!

Edit 4/7/10: Cassie of You go Girl (similarly inspired by rosehip) has a great tutorial on how to make the pillowcase, blanket stitch, & scalloped crochet edging! Discovered via Craftzine.
