from the weekend . . .

Did a bit of sewing, but not too much.  Hit a bit of a puzzle:  How to use the crochet bits from these two ancient pillowcases?

Do note the scalloped edge and how thoroughly it’s sewn into place… would love not to have to un-pick that.

    I think the crochet would look gorgeous on the ends of some sleeves, or on the hem of a dress! I also love the fabric that you’re using for your table topper, it’s so pretty and colourful 🙂

      Thank for those suggestions, Jess! I’d never have thought of sleeves for the crochet, which might work as there are two, but they’re not very long bits… Now, can visualise a way to cut them with some selvage to save all that unpicking, too!

      That topper is a good vintage piece from 15 (?) years ago in California… maybe from a local Beverly’s, which is on-line now. I loved the colours, too, but fabric was too stiff for clothing. A topper was the next best thing I could think of.
