Beautiful!

As for the blood - try hydrogen peroxide. Just dab a bit on, let it foam, and dap clean with a damp rag... works everytime for me! (weird, that makes me sound like some crazy serial killer... I'm not, just accident-prone, I swear...)

They're both so pretty! I love the Kate Greenaway one - it's really darling!

To remove dried blood, I'd dab on hydrogen pyroxide using a q-tip, and work it until it all lifts out - you'll have to probably rinse it several times, and reapply the hydrogen pyroxide.

If that doesn't work, make a paste out of Biz, work it into the two tiny spots (assuming they aren't on the embroidery), let it soak a bit, and then rinse it out.

If that doesn't work, you can do the old cream of tartar trick... but I'm not sure what the pillow cases are made of??? This would work on natural fibers... and it also depends on whether your thread is color fast. Anyway, here's the trick:

In a pot on the stove (a 2 quart pot will do) boil water. Turn the heat off. Add two teaspoons of cream of tartar and stir to dissolve.  Plunge the pillow case into it and let it soak for a bit - no more than 10 minutes. The stains should lift right out. Then rinse the pillow case and let it dry.

This is the thing, though: You will encounter problems if the case was not pre-shrunk, as the very hot water will certainly cause shrinkage. Also, I'm not sure how it would work on anything that's not a 100% natural fiber. And I don't know how the colored threads would take it. So I'd only go in that direction if you're absolutely desperate.

I do know that the cream of tartar works on linens and cottons for really tough stains (like red wines). The stains come right out and the fabric looks as new as ever.
