Thank you so much for your research! I wish I would have waited for your reviews! I ordered the mentioned blade and hook and when they came, I looked at them and thought they would be questionable and wasn't interested in using them - wish I could return them - they won't get used. I am still excited to try the tutorial and will do soon! Even if it tangles, I will do it because I love the finished result and how they look! I like the doubled yarn look like you do so will do whatever it takes to get it done! :o) Thanks again for the wonderful tutorial - that was so generous of you! I never would have figured it out on my own and I'd never heard of a housewife pillowcase and am excited to make one!

Beautiful crochet work and I love the Denyse Schmidt fabrics you chose :)

You do such pretty work.

They're beautiful.
And I agree with the solution you have settled on. You do very nice work.

No wonder you've been so quiet! You've been making pillowcases! (Thanks for the reminder, I have fabric waiting...) I'd never heard of the blade or sharp crochet hook -- although it seems like that crochet hook would have been a good option. Thanks for the review though -- two lengths of yarn seems like a great option. LOVE LOVE LOVE those pillowcases!

saw the initial comments about the blade, but couldn't figure out why anyone would use it since it CUTS THE FABRIC! (you really tried that?!)

the best suggestion is to end up with two knots. still love those pillowcases, and keep planning to make a few sets of my own. someday.

Hi there - can you recommend the best yarns to use for the crochet edging. I did find the baby bamboo a while back but can't find it now in other colors. Do you have recommendations on what you've found that works the best and washes up and wears the best? Thank you so much for the help!

Hi I’m Heather! Please email me when you get a chance! I have a question about your blog. HeatherVonsj(at)gmail(dot)com

Cassie, just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed making your posh pillowcases, and went on to make a pair of them. My fabric was a lavendar print floral, and crocheted with a lavendar yarn. I love the look with the crochet edging. Yes the blanket stitch made with the long strand of doubled yarn took time, but it was worth it. I think you really need the double to keep the edging stable. Don't think I'd do it any different. Thank-you again for the pattern.

Great solution! I used your tutorial, chocolates and all, with great success. I like to use #3 perle cotton instead of yarn, and did resort to a shorter length.
Thanks you !

Hi there! I think your pillow cases with the crocheted edgings are beautiful! I use the Sharp Crochet Hook all the time and it does not leave holes in the fabric, it just moves the fibers out of the way, like a large needle would do. It is a super quick way to crochet edgings.

I've made the cases and I love them. My first attempt I used hand wash only yarn and then switched to basic machine washable, not as delicate, but still pretty. The one thing I did differently was to cut some fusible interfacing for the edges. This helps me with my OCD measuring of the edge and after washing doesn't allow the fabric to bunch up in the blanket stitches.

I love your pillowcases and beautiful crochet edges! I've recently picked up my crochet hook again and....I'm hooked!
At the moment I've been crocheting around fleece blankets and the skip stitch blade works like a charm.....ON FLEECE.
Thanks for the heads-up on using them on fabric! Looking forward to trying your new method on some pillowcases! Thanks!

Beautiful pillowcases. Enjoyed your article and all the tips.

Ces bordures au crochet sont vraiment très belles. Bravo!

Love these pillow cases. I've been making them too....not for sale, but for my own home and gifts. I've used
Cascade Pima Cotton for the edging, what do you use to edge yours with? I'd like to use whatever washes the best.
Your pillowcases and color choices are all so happy. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the crochet how-to! You have
created a crochet monster and I couldn't be
happier! How do you do the other edging (not
the scalloped one)? Would it be possible for
you to email the details?
[email protected]
Your use of colors and patterns is so very
inspiring and cheerful! Thanks for brightening
my day!
