This was a very enjoyable project! The stitching went quickly and I didn't work on it everyday. Here are a few close ups.
This pillowcase brand was really nice to stitch, which means I will be looking into acquiring another set or two in the near future. By the way,... what do you consider 'percale' to be? I've seen 100% cotton bed linens and poly/cotton blend ones with this 'percale' description.
Now a few photos of the back ;-).
Here is the post where I talked about this pillowcase embroidery beginnings. The only thing I changed was working the stems with two strands of embroidery thread instead of three. This was my very first embroidered pillowcase and I can assure you that it will not be my last. Below are the beginnings of my second one :-).
The pattern is courtesy of floresita's transfers on Flickr. I did some changes for it to suit my taste and size of pillowcase. Will definitely post updates!
Enjoy your weekend!
