This an embroidery from www.UrbanThreads.com I love, love, LOVE all the choices I have on their site.
The roses on the left side are original to the vintage pillowcase. For the embroidery portion we picked colors similar to the roses. I really like how they truly complement each other. Even the words did not turn out too dark so that they blended better.
I loved working on this old cotton fabric. You can tell the quality of workmanship compared to today's products, this was so thick and heavy and will surely outlast modern wovens.
Here is a picture of the back of the stitching. I am very proud of how my hand stitch work is progressing over the years. I really like the look of the back, one day I might even use the back as the front!
This will go into the Artfire shop tomorrow, I need to soak the tracing marks off and do a bit of ironing.
Next up are some His and Hers Zombies!
What will you create today?
