Crochet Edge Pillowcases

It's such a gorgeous beautiful day here.  Cool, overcast and breezy!

I took advantage of this beautiful morning to organized and cleaned out a box full of accumulated Christmas and assorted gift bags (by occasion) out in the garage. I'm so glad I have been keeping up being organized in the garage cupboards/closets.  It's a great feeling now to go there and find exactly what I need.
Another belated project finally finished.
I added 2 different crochet edgings to this set of pillowcases. Last summer I learned to sew pillowcases.  This set of pillowcases will be flying back with me to Minnesota, and will be used for our bed.
I used this pattern for the top pillowcase crochet edge from a vintage crochet magazine I found at an estate sale.  I collect old crochet magazines...I just never know when I will need a pattern
For the bottom pillowcase crochet edge, I simply came up with the idea myself.  I now wished I had used the pattern from the magazine.
My decorated Easter egg gift from Jacob, my 4 year old nephew!  He did it all by himself!
Thank you!!!
