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  Smiley 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! Cheesy Comments appreciated.

Awesome Job! I love the diamonds on the broadway one. Maybe this will motivate me to dress up my plain jane pillowcases.

Those are beautiful. The California themed case reminds me of souvenir cases from the 40s and 50s. I love your choice of items to go along with your themes! Great work!

Wow, I would love to get a present like that! You did a great job, and I don't think the California one is too crowded. Smiley

Those are really awesome.  Your friends should consider themselves lucky for having such a crafty friend.  Did you design the California embroidery by hand?  I'd love to have a CA one as I used to live there but I'm afraid the state outline would end up looking more like Italy.

Excellent stitching. They are beautiful. Metallic floss is such a pain in the arse.
