A quick share of my finished hand embroidered pillowcase that I made for my Grandmothers birthday.This is an Aunt Martha's hot Iron Transfer design called "blue onion motifs" #3759. One of the designs in the packet is just that but this one is the dogwood. The pillow case (2 in a pack) I purchased and transfers at Jo-ann's.
Pillowcase is 50/50 poly cotton and they are standard size.
I used DMC floss. The color numbers for the flowers were 224 a rose color, 739 beige and 967, peach. Flowers centers a light yellow in #744. Hash marks on the inside of the flower #801 brown. Leaves in a light green #3364 and a dark green #937 also the stems were done in the dark green. This was my first time doing a split stitch and I do need more practice but I like the way it covers over the transfer lines. I also did a split stitch below the dogwood design just to give the pillow more color.
Now I will wrap it up and send it on its way.
I have a tea towel that I will be working on soon. Thanks for stopping bye and have a wonderful day.
