I really enjoyed stitching 3 sets of embroidered pillow cases this winter. Embroidery is a skill I learned many years ago but it seemed to fall by the wayside. Two of the sets I added an iron-on pattern and one set I purchased ready stamped.
The iron on patterns were quite old, must be at least 20 years old, but worked well. You can still buy Aunt Martha’s patterns online at various places. I remember buying pre stamped pieces (doilies, runners, pillow cases) at the five & dime store. Oh-h-h-h that goes back a long way.
These pillow cases have an embroidered bow iron on pattern on them.
Another set of pillow cases had a flower pattern ironed on and then stitched.
I purchased a set of pre-stamped pillow cases with a dream catcher pattern on them plus a package of embroidery thread in the colours needed.
These are for the grandkids when they come to visit in late spring this year.
These are all done in shades of browns and beige, each pillow case different except for the colour of the hoop.
I also added their names to each one so they can take them home as a remembrance of their trip to Ontario from British Columbia.
I have also purchased two dream catcher kits so that they can each make their own dream catcher to hang over their beds for here and at home.
Do you ever do embroidery anymore?
