Wilkos were selling pure cotton pillowcases so I bought a pack. To be honest, they were nowhere near as thick and soft as my original pillowcase. If I hadn't known they were pure cotton, I would have assumed they were polycotton. Then I discovered they were wider than the crochet was long! What to do? I didn't want my poor strip of crochet looking lost in the middle of the edge, so I decided to put it aside until I could make a case that fitted it, from a better-quality cotton at that. That left me with two plain, white Wilkos pillowcases. I decided to embroider one using one of the haul of vintage transfers I bought from Claire at Eternal Magpie. It might not be my pillowcase, but I could still make myself something special – something for the cat to scrag whenever she wants to wake me up!
