Use Old Pillowcases to Line Tote Bags

I had a lot of faded pillowcases which I didn't want to use for the beds, but were still in good shape. Since I enjoy making crochet shopping bags and totes with any scrap yarn I have leftover from other projects, I modified the crochet bag patterns slightly to the size of the pillowcases so they can be used as liners for inside the bags. There is no sewing required. Just whip stitch the opening of the pillowcase to the top of the bags. The crochet bags look much better, last longer with a lining, and I have a good use for the old pillowcases. This works particularly well with granny squares as you can work them to fit around the size of the pillowcase.
