These are some pillow cases I made for my friend who’s having a tough time sleeping right now.  I used Jenny’s expression for her pillow and the title of a Ray Condo and the Ricochets song for the other one…all the details are indicative of him and he loves the especially the cards which are the Aces and 8’s (the deadman’s hand).  I think it is easier to sleep on a darker colored pillow case so I used red because it is the darkest color I can still transfer on to Wink  Note to self though that lint is not your friend when photographing dark colors in bright daylight the lines really are sharp but the lint has made them look fuzzy.

If the flames on the dice look familiar it is because I retro-fitted them from the martini glass Wink

Ooo-ooo!  These are awesome!  Such a nice balance of images and words and the stitches are so tidy.  I've been looking around for some shamrocks and clovers for a little pillowcase embroidery project of my own.  You're getting bookmarked!

Wow, perfect! Your stitches look amazing. Your guitar and cards look fantastic. I like how you added extra outlining and such. These pillow cases rock.
