Embroidered Pillowcase

These pretty vintage pillowcases with the filet edging were purchased on ebay. For some reason they are huge, so I am going to cut them down a bit on the other end. I adapted the designs from the J. F. Ingalls embroidery catalog published in 1886. Scans of the catalog are available on John Governale’s web site. My other pillowcase will be a pansy pattern, with flowers stitched in variegated floss and the same green for the leaves.
