Embroidered Pillowcases

These pillowcases were made as a Christmas gift. I adapted the designs from the J. F. Ingalls embroidery catalog published in 1886.  Scans of the catalog are available on the Exceedingly Curious blog of John Governale. Because the designs are very detailed, I used only one strand of floss. The vintage crocheted pillowcases were purchased on ebay.
