This pillowcase is for a friend of mine who just moved into her first own appartment. I have no idea what her interior and decoration looks like but I know she likes bright colors and those are about 1000 times brighter in real life than on those pics Grin. I started out with some common granny squares
which I crocheted together with some sturdier white thread as a contrast. Once the front was finished I made the back of the pillowcase from fabrik, including a hemstitch border to finally crochet front and back together with the matching colors. This took some time because you have to be really careful not to create a twisted mess out of the fabric. Heres a more detailed shot:
. Hope you enjoyed it Grin!

More details and making-of can be found here: http://bohemiancrafting.blogspot.com/2010/07/pillowcase-of-blinding-color-3.html

P.S.: Living in a goth household I almost had to wear sunglasses in the process of making
P.P.S.: DH was shocked by the colors but relieved when I told him the piecell leave the house soon

Thank you, youre welcome Grin! The opening created by the hemstitch doesn`t need to be any much bigger than to fit the crochet hook through comfortably. Depending on how sturdy your fabric is you dont have to pull out many strings (only took out two strings for the pillowcase).
