Here is a pillowcase I finished a couple of weeks ago.  I am going to be starting a mate for it soon. 






Ok, now for the stitch details:  For the cakes and the cupcakes, I used a backstitch for the bottom part of the cake, and a split stitch for the frosting. Cake pattern source:  Stitch-it Kit & cupcake pattern source: Sublime Stitching book. 

For the banner and the words, I used a back stitch.  Banner source:  Stitch-it Kit.  For the letters I used a font called:  Lariat

For the stars I made french knots using 2 strands of floss, and altered the colors from a mint green to a pistachio green, and used 4 strands of goldenrod for the stars.  Star pattern source:  Tattoo Your Towels.

xoxo

Yeah, I need to take a picture of the entire pillowcase.  I just couldn't get back far enough.  Stay tuned though.   Wink
