thinking that you really like the way it is looking.............and then when it is finished, you find that you really do not like the end results?
That happens to me a lot. I spend a lot of time, planning, drawing out designs, and then embroidering for weeks and then after taking a good look...............I feel disappointed. This has happened to a few pillowcase sets that I have worked on.
A while back, a dark black butterfly landed on my hand and inspired me to embroider a set of pillowcases, making the butterfly look like this. I only embroidered one of the cases. Not happy with how the butterfly looked, I put the cases away.
Until the other day, I found them again and decided to pull out the embroidery I did not like and to re-stitch what I wanted. This seems much better. I finished embroidering both pillowcases,
then I crocheted the pillowcase end in the same light blue that the butterfly's wings have, and then added this sweet blue and white print fabric that has butterflies and flowers on it.
Now the set has a cottage look to it. Do you like it?
I also embroidered this vintage design onto a set of pillowcases a while back.
I love the cluster of flowers and the curve of the design.
I crocheted a white edge to the pillowcase and then added some of my very favorite vintage fabric.
Now the set has a shabby chic look........don't you think?
These cases look beautiful against a vibrant colored quilt............
or a vintage faded quilt.
How about you?
What are some things that you have created and then gone back to touch up or completely change?
I would love to hear!
