Petal Pillowcases


Do you remember how much I was stressing over these padded satin stitches

Well many, many, MANY padded satin stitches later, they're not all that scary anymore.  And rather fun really!
His and Her Petal Pillowcases

I'm really pleased with how these pillowcases turned out.  How I wish I would have stopped stressing and gotten a start on them sooner so I could have finished the Storybook Pillowcases also.  Will you hold my feet to the fire and make sure I make a set of those pillowcases too?  I just LOVE the Storybook Pillowcases and I've have all the thread to make them so really there are no excuses.  Check in with me at the end of March, will ya? 

If you played along, and trust me I know February was a short month,  please put a link to your beautifully finished pillowcases in the original announcement post and you could win a copy of The Embroiderer's Handbook.  And hey if you embroidered any design onto a pillowcase this month you are eligible to enter.  It's the inspiration that counts.  The giveaway has been extended to Monday March 7th.
