Embroidered PillowCase

 These were something that I planned long back,a bed sheet and pillow cases , with a contrasting trim.But never did  I work on this, though I bought material and decided on what to do/how to do etc. Most of the times,my plan remains as a plan itself, and sometime I start with my plan and ends up in a totally different thing. Last week,after touching my hands on crochet,cross stitch(nothing in a completed stage) etc I decided to make some pillow cases and I checked my cupboard for fabric, I saw this off white material and polka dotted fabric nicely folded together with the embroidery pattern and rough sewing design kept inside.See, how good I am in planning!! LOL
And I decided to give it a try.I got a video to make hidden seam pillow cases from Mini. I find this a super easy tutorial and I followed this to sew my pillows though I omitted the accent piece.And here is a close up on the  embroidery.
Just chain stitch,satin stitch and french knots,the usual stitches I do. The pattern is from here,I omitted some flowers shown in the original pattern.The bed sheet plan is still there, hope I finish it off soon!Hope you all liked my new finish.
Till next time
Take Care
