Gravy-Cat’s Favorite Pillow

When I decide whether I want to mend something, or repurpose it elsewhere, I first ask “how much do I love this item?”
Well, I don’t love this pillow case at all, in fact, years ago I even gave up patching the comforter it came with – but my kitty, Gravy, adores this pillowcase, so I just have to save it.

This is an ongoing mend, I have to add more patches almost every time I wash it, but it’s given me lots of practice with patching and blanket stitch (can you tell blanket stitch is my favorite way to affix patches?). I decided to use an embroidery hoop when patching this as it helped me see the weak spots in this old fabric, I could stretch it out and hold it up to the light.
