la calavera

Day Three:

I really like where this is now....



Day Two:I added a chainstitch in yellow and stitched the skull in light gray. At this point I was thinking the skull looked pretty boring, but I kept at it...



Day One:I started off pretty plain, like, this...


This is a pillowcase I started recently - I used all six strands of the embroidery floss included in Jenny Hart's Stitch-It Kit (the pattern is also from the kit). I like how using all the strands gives the embroidery a puffy, raised texture. I don't like how it leaves large holes in the fabric when I change my mind about the colors... :(
