These are pair of Embroidered Pillow Covers which I did for my Parents.
The colour is bright red. (yes it is danger color that too for pillow covers but my mom likes Red a lot so it is her preference).
In them, I have embroidered the alphabets N and K . The alphabets are first letters of my dad and mom’s name.
Around K, I tried to make a Crown kind of thing and for the border I used a design with Closed Button Hole Stitch.
The crown around K looks good but in the picture it is not very clear.Also the markings are gone in the real one. The picture was taken before washing and has the markings.
I have an embroidery stitches book by Mridula Nagarajan and the border design is taken from that book. I enlarged it to make little more bold.
N pillow Cover is pretty simple compared to K and it has embroidered flowers on four corners.
The material is Soft Poplin and it is in good condition even after muliple washings.
Have a look at the pics and post your comments.
