Instead of making one set of pillowcases, I’ve opted to make two so enough fabrics were found at Jo-Ann’s to help me meet my goal. Both prints work pretty well together, one is sand dollars and the other a large print that actually emulates a bit of the sand dollar design.First thing I do after purchasing fabric is wash it all and hang it on the clothesline. Seeing my next project blowing in the breeze makes me happy.

Project Readiness: On the Edge
Cassie’s instructions for Week One were to gather supplies. She rated that assignment as Difficulty Level: 1 Dove Chocolate. You just have to love a project rated via the number of chocolates you need.

Turquoise is Pantone’s color of the year—works out nicely for me.
Week 2 (last week) was to Construct a Posh Pillowcase, Difficulty Level: 2 1/2 chocolates. Here are my four finished pillowcases with the crochet yarn I’ll use for each set. Cassie’s pillowcase tutorial was easy to follow.
While waiting for Week 3 to start, I bought a crochet book and have been watching YouTube videos and practicing since I don’t know how to crochet at all.
To keep everything together, I assembled a kit using an Amy Butler scrapbook tote. Today begins Week 3 of the On the Edge project and I’m excited about moving forward.
