Hi ladies. Please respond if you can help, thanks.

I just finished hand embroidering a pillowcase for my niece. The problem now is the edge is hemstitched (factory done). I have the trim I want to attach. The trim looks like crochet. What stitch do I use to hand attach it??? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

You could just butt the edges together and zig zag it onto the pillowcase with the same color thread unless your machine has an edge stitch on it.
