Just look at what I unearthed in the sewing room! There were nine pillowcases, making taped together into two bundles. I didn't save the tape, but I think they were marked a dollar each.
That would've been a great price, but I've never seen these before. My best guess is that Grandma sent them home to me in a box of estate sale leftovers and I didn't see them tucked in between a bunch of white sheets.
I don't agree with the sentiment, but this one is going on my pillow.
The border on this one looks crocheted. That's one of the skills on my own to-learn list, but when and if I ever do an edging it's going to be wide enough that it won't be mistaken for buttonhole stitch!
I'll run them through the washer on gentle and see which ones look sturdy enough to actually use. The white ones are fair game, but if the pretty ones seem too delicate I may figure out a different use for them.
