As a young girl I purchased pre-printed pillowcases from a local five-n-dime store. The images were sweet, quaint, and creatively stimulating. The colors were beautiful and the embroidery threads luscious. I enjoyed creating such a project in this FREE Emboidered Pillowcase Pattern with a bit more of a modern flair, and designed it with a holiday theme. The design is so simple, it can be embroidered in a day! Try it, it’s free!
Here are a couple of holiday options that will work beautifully with the pillowcase pattern. Both are fitting for the season. Ornamental Christmas evokes flavors of traditional with the lovely tree branches, and Enamaled Ornaments has a sense of yesteryear as the ornaments are recreations of those used in the early 1900s. Each have their own supporting fabrics that will complete the pillowcase in a dramatic way. Check them out on the Connecting Threads website!
I hope you are as happy making the Embroidered Pillowcase as I was designing it for you!
