His & Hers Pillowcase Set

The past few weeks I've been off and on working on this His & Hers pillowcase set for me and my hubby. Today I finally finished, washed, dried and ironed them! The stitches I used were stem/outline, satin, lazy daisy, and silk ribbon embroidered sweetheart rose, I also used a few hidden tacking stitches to secure the sweetheart roses a little extra. I got the pattern from an Aunt Martha Iron-On. I'm so happy to have my very own set of embroidered pillowcases! I've never owned any embroidered linens before, but I've made some as gifts for others though.

Just lovely, Melissa. I like the love heart on the i, that's a nice touch.

Melissa, they are beautiful as your work always is. I've embroidered several sets for my hubby and I through the years and was on the receiving end (several times) from my grandmother. Enjoy!!!!!!

They came out beautiful. Look so professional.
I am just getting into hand embroidery myself and downloaded a free pattern from the coats and clark website. Taking it with me on vacation. Hope I do it justice!
Where are there designs to copy and print on the web???? Hard to find.

The pillowcases came out really well. Your stitching is so precise the lines look as if they were written with a pen. Beautiful job.
