The other day I was visiting my mother, who I have inspired to go through her stuff and simplify, and she was offering some of her stuff up for grabs- including some crafty things.
While I appreciate all the things I was able to nab from her, lol, I was particularly excited about some pillowcases that had yet to be embroidered.
When I was growing up I always had a pillowcase that my mother had embroidered to sleep on at night. This is something that I had never really thought about until I moved out and realized that I missed the personal touch that you get to look at every night before bed. For the past few months I have been bugging John about how I wanted to start making some pillowcases to embroider so that I could continue the tradition with us and (much) later, our children.
Below is the first pillowcase that I have finished- I just keep reminding myself that handmade items are not suppose to be perfect, lol.
And, I don’t have the time to show you guys more but here is a sneek peak at a new tutorial and a project that I am (slowly) working on!
