Pillowcase Swap

I made this pair of pillowcases for a swap that I am in. I have wanted to try this design for a while so I thought it was perfect for the pillowcases. It was all embroidered on my embroidery machine. The lace skirt was stitched on a water soluble material and than when it is washes away it just leaves the lace. The lace skirt has 30,000 stitches  and the rest of the design another 15,000 stitches.  They will be going to America. I hope that my swap partner likes them

  1. WOW look at that skirt it is intricately beautiful xxx

  2. Yes a lot of work for the embroidery machine. I also forgot to mention that you can cut under her skirt away. I think this would make lovely doileys with the skirt cut away. My swap partner can have the choice if she would like to cut it away or not.

  3. Oh aren't these beautiful!! I am certain your swap partner will love them!

  4. I love your pillow cases! Would you mind telling me where you found the design? I am working on an apron that should be made from vintage pillow cases. I don't have any so I have been embroidering my own. I have been looking everywhere for a design for the pillow case ladies.

    Thanks so much.

  5. Thanks for the nice comments I got the design from belle&seogrid1=page2.
    They are a bargain only $1.00 each.
    Have fun.

  6. I have no idea why the link is not working. If you put the address
    put southern belle in search box and go to page 2. Good luck.
