i embroidered these two pillowcases for the crazy cat lovers swap 2.

"I love my cats"  - done in satin stitch
"The best kind of alarm clock...is the purring kind" - using variegated thread





i was really happy with how they turned out. my boyfriend thought i took the 'i love my cats' one someone to be machine embroidered!!! Shocked Shocked
