Hearts and Ribbon

Houston, Texas, ...






Embroidered pillow cases. Of all the embroidery I have done, this is the most difficult so far, but since it is for my dad I don’t mind. He is special and he deserves that and so much more.

Material Notes

Bought cotton pillow cases, needles, thread of many colors.




Garment Type
Other, Victorian

      Thanks! Is that what that bi-color thread is called? I didn’t know. I originally bought it for I don’t even remember what for, but it ocurred to me that I could use it for hand embroidery.

    Absolutely love this! I too thought the blue was ribbon until I looked more closely. Beautiful work. Lucky dad!

    Inspiringly beautiful. Well Done! An idea for my uncle’s 90th – he’s just as worthy!

    This is lovely! Where did you get the idea from? Something you drew, or was it from a pattern?
