My fiancee and I celebrated our two-year anniversary on monday, but money is really tight this year, so I put my crafty butt into gear!

She's been asking me to make her pillowcases for awhile now, and she LOVES tattoo-style sparrows, so I whipped up this design in photoshop and stitched these babies up.

Thankfully, she loved them!


A purple one with her name


The sparrows are worked in backstitch, with a bit of satin stitch on the beaks


A blue one with my name
(my lettering looks a bit weird here, but I think the fabric is just wrinkly)


The lettering was done with six strands, I really like how it turned out.
(the font is from dafont.com, by the way)

Lovely! I'm sure that she'll love it.  It's like tattooed-pillow-talk!
