Today I would like to show you a little "side"project of mine. My boyfriend was in desperate need of new pillowcases. So I made him the following two with checkered woolen scrap fabric. But somehow they were kind of boring.
Then I found this amazing and pretty cool book called 'Embroidered Effects' and tried to jazz them up a little. I made two patches. After stitching I sewed them on felt so that they won't fray. This was a pretty easy and fun project!The first one reminds me of those old sailor jerry tattoos and the second is a colorful skull inspired by 'Día de los Muertos'. Think I am going to embroider more in the future!
