Embroidered Pillowcases

Standard

Here are my latest pillowcases, embroidered with a simple graphic and floral design. I do love to embroider . . . it’s relaxing, portable, and the perfect way to add a bit of a-la-mode to sewing and crafting projects. I learned my first stitches from my grandma when I was ten years old . . . I hope I get to pass them on to my granddaughters someday! ♥

    • Thank you! I usually do shorter and quicker embroidery projects now . . . but I did one SUPER long one that I can write about after I give it as a gift. I do love embroidered pillowcases though since we grew up with them! :)

  1. Beautiful. I love embroidery for the same reason.It was a great conversation starter on long flights until they took our scissors away. I enjoy ribbon embroidery too and machine embroidery. You inspire me.

    • I took some handwork on my last flight and took a pair of those little kiddy scissors that my first-graders used and they didn’t take them away from me! :) (I figured that if they did, I wouldn’t be out much so it was worth a try.) I’ve never done ribbon or machine embroidery, but I think it’s beautiful! And thank you for the sweet compliment! :)

  2. Very pretty! I wish I knew how to make pretty things like this! My grandma tried to teach me to knit but got fed up with my inability to sit still, so I went outside and climbed a tree instead. Now I can’t even figure out how to thread my sewing machine. I swear I spent an hour and a half at war with something called a bobbin yesterday…. ;)

    • I can’t knit either!!! I’ve tried so many times by reading directions from different books (even how-to books for little kids!) but I can’t get the hang of it. Someday I’ll ask a very patient person to teach me. :) But keep working at figuring out your sewing machine! I can’t wait to see your first PILLOW! :)

    • SMILE! But you should see my HUGE pile of “want-to-dos!” I think it gets bigger by the day. And I woke up with ANOTHER idea this morning . . . I’m pretty sure I dream about sewing and crafting every night. :) Thanks, Liz! :)
