pillows

A pillowcase I made last year.
Just plain blue fabric and sewingthread - and then I just started, and came up with this.

Here is a example of embroidery made I guess about the 70's or later.
I found them in or garage on the floor, and simply fell in love. I must say, the colours are not my favorites, but think of all time someone used to make them!

I have also made 2 pillowcases, embroderied with beads- I will post pictures of them later.

If any of you have grandparent who likes to save old things, they might have old pilowcases with their initials embrodiered onto them, and old handmade tablecloths! Amazing!
