Here is what I've been working on lately. I am using a 500 thread count black pillow case and three strand thickness of white embroidery floss for this project. When it is done it will be a throw pillow.
I drew out the image I wanted to embroider with a white pencil before going in with the floss. I have also just used a stem stitch for everything on this project. I'm about half way there and will show you guys the finished project soon (I hope).
