Here’s a close-up of the thank-you gifts I’m making my daughters’ teachers.
I like to embroider on vintage pillowcases (with white tatting trim) in what nineteenth-century embroiderers called “turkey red” floss. Obviously, everything is drawn freehand, so nothing is "perfect," but I always prefer things that are a little "off."
One pillowcase has the teacher’s name, with an apple in the middle; the other has our school’s name, with its crest in the middle.
This image is a literal scan—I placed the pillowcases directly on the scanner!
