Embroidered Pillow Cases


My dear daughter wanted some white flannel pillow cases with a grey motif embroidered on them. She found the motif she wanted...http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=925

They did theirs on an already made pillow case but I figured I would have a hard time finding a white flannel pillow case so I went to Joanns and got some white flannel on sale. I looked up on the internet how to make a pillow case, lots of ideas there. Then I had to figure out the whole left/right mirror image thing. I had to do one embroidery over again because I got it on upside down but it finally all worked out. I thought the grey satin ribbon across them would look nice.They turned out just great and they are on their way to my dear daughter. Enjoy them sweetie.

Great idea! I've never made pillowcases, but it looks manageable. I've never done embroidery, but it is on my list of things to learn. I'm sure she'll love these - I would!

Love that little embroidery. Those pillowcases are delightful. I'm sure your daughter will love them-and her mum for making them!

Those are so pretty! Love that satin you added. Be sure to tell your daughter to use them and not put them away because they are too pretty to use. ;-)

Ooh, I want a set! I'd be happy to send you my address! :) As usual, you do beautiful work - these very pretty and classy!

And I agree with Auntie Em - make sure your daughter uses them! I have a set that my grandmother embroidered for me, sometimes I pause before using them because I want them to "last", but there's a great comfort and love felt when I do use them! Take Care - Elizabeth
