So some of my friends from school and I decided a great way to stay crafty and keep in touch this summer is to do a swap. Our theme was "dreams" and because I just learned to embroider I decided to embroider them each a pillowcase. I think the California one might be a bit crowded, but I had a great time making them It also gave me a chance to try out the whole iron-on laser print transfer method and to use metallic floss. I got the banners from Sublime.
For my friend from CA. It says “California Dreaming”
Left, a Mola Mola fish, the state w/ her town and the capital and the state flower.
Right, a gold prospector, a grizzly and the flower again.
For my friend who loves Broadway Musicals. “Musical Dreams” with silver floss diamonds on the letters.
The right side, with a hat for Wicked and the Little Women logo.
The left side, featuring Phantom (her fave) and Rent.
The center with Beauty and the Beast.
Definately my largest embroidery undertaking so far! Comments appreciated.
