This time, country style

Although I don’t have TV, I am still watching a lot of movies and series on the internet. I am kind of a series freak. I however don’t really like just to sit and watch, I need to do something with my hands. Usually I keep them busy with crochetting or cross stitching. When I do some cross stitch embroidery usually I have then problem what to do with it. A pillow, or some other decoration? Well, this time I had two ribbons with cross stitched flowers on it, so I decided to make simple country style pillows. I like how they turned out, I think they could be a nice decoration in a cottage.

Japaneese style pillows

I have not been sewing for few months. I have been studying for my exams, but luckily I passed. This weekend I had finally learning free weekend, so I finished the embroided japaneese style pillowcases. I wanted someting simple, in natural colors, I used linen-cotton fabric and only few shades lighter emroidery thread.  And here is the result:

Tatty Teddy pillow case

Cross stitch is my favourite technique of embroidery. Usually I cross stitch when I am at home in Slovakia during Christmas and watch fairy tales (moment – haven’t I mentioned it already once?). Anyway, I made this one two or maybe even three years ago. I discovered him again recently and I told myself that I shouldn’t let him just hide in the cupboard. So I made a pillowcase out of it. I hope it will bring joy to some kid, or a fan of the bear with blue nose.
