Customer Reviews

I think it is going to be nice as I love butterfliesI think it is going to be nice as I love butterflies. I doubt I do the heavier fill stitch but you never know. The quality seems fine. It is 40poly/60cotton.The serger thread did run out from the cuff which I thought a bit cheesy; it wouldn't take much to have a nicer finish. I can fix it but shouldn't have to.I 'fat finger' ordered this but decided to keep as I like to embroider. I thought it had floss in the package but did not. That is fine as I have a bunch. 4Wonderful project -- even for beginners like me!I was browsing for some embroidery supplies for my daughter when I chanced upon this product. Even though I had never sewn a single stitch before, the pattern was so lovely and the design was so feminine (and I still did not have a present for my step-daughter's medical graduation) that I purchased it on impulse. My little 8-yr-old had been introduced to embroidery by the aforementioned step-daughter, so how hard could it be, I thought to myself.It was definitely not without challenges. For this project, even though it is stamped and easy to follow, I had to learn five stitches: outline, back, lazy daisy, colonial knot (I used French knots instead), and straight stitch (this one is so intuitively simple that you don't really have to "learn" it). I had to figure out how to use an embroidery hoop and position it correctly so that my embroidery floss ("thread" for those of you who, like me, had never before heard the word "floss" used in a non-oral-hygiene way) wouldn't tangle mid-stitch in its screw assembly.I had to learn which length was the proper length to cut: too long and it becomes cumbersome to stitch and too short makes it easy to poke myself in the fingers. I had to learn how to separate floss strands (DMC floss contains six strands) without tangling them (just hold up the strands and pass a finger lightly down the split all the way to the end). I learned it all after careful observation and trial-and-error. Even so, taking my time, I never made a major mistake. Sometimes, the process was frustrating, but I really enjoyed embroidering these two pillowcases, and the gift recipient was duly impressed and touched by the time and effort it took to create this for her. I enjoy embroidering now and have already purchased other projects from Amazon to make for other family members. It appeals to the restless perfectionist in me because it is soothing and requires precision. ;)A few things I noticed:One of the pillowcase designs is a mirror image (not the exact orientation) of the other. This means you need to keep track of which leaf or flower you are stitching when referring to the stitch guide. For instance, on the mirror-imaged pillowcase design, some of the stitches for the top side of a leaf are displayed on the bottom side on the instructions.On one of the pillowcases, the blue ink stamped onto the fabric was much lighter than on the other pillowcase. This made it slightly harder to follow the line of stitch, but not prohibitively so.I tried to cut a corner one day when I didn't have exactly the correct shade of DMC floss and used some of my daughter's cheap floss in a similar color on the flower edges. It was subtle, but it threw off the color scheme, and the floss didn't behave as nicely as the DMC floss, so be sure to use genuine DMC floss in the color # given on the guide for best results.This project called for seven different colors of DMC floss, which cost less than $10 at my local Michael's store (I live in northern NM). Each color had to be separated into two strands for stitching. Only once did the project call for combining one strand each of two different colors - for the little knots in the center of the flowers (light yellow + dark green; the effect was pretty).I bought a cheap plastic embroidery hoop package from Hobby Lobby with four different sizes, as well as a bamboo hoop. I began the project using a 10" bamboo hoop, but quickly found the 6" one to be the easiest to work with. At the end of the project, I switched to a 4" hoop for the two tiny leaves.With my learning curve, this being my very first embroidery project, watching YouTube videos (for me, Mary Corbet's were the best), and following the guide, it took me five weeks to complete both pillowcases. The first one took me about 25-28 hours or so to complete (along with studying YouTube videos), and the second one, which I thought had nicer, tighter, neater stitches, took maybe 55-65% that amount of time.All in all, I had fun doing this for my very first embroidery project and would definitely recommend it to others, both beginners and veterans alike. .review-image-thumbnail { background-position: center center; background-repeat: no-repeat; overflow: hidden; background-size: cover; height: 160px; width: 235px; } .review-media-gallery-content { height:100%; width:100%; background-color:black; } .reviews-mobile-media-gallery .a-carousel-viewport { margin-left:15px; } .cr-thumbnail-image { float: left; } 5Pillowcases were nicePretty much what I expected, except when I went to wash it, the blue guidelines didn't want to disappear... Even after soaking. I suspect eventually they'll wash away, but it wasn't as quick as the other patterns I've used. 4Birthday gift of flowers that will never dieMy best friend loved this pair of pillowcases very much when I gave it as a special birthday gift. The photo does not do it justice. It is quite intricate and might be a challenge for a beginner, but give it a try. Lovely pattern, but it will take a while. Excellent seller and service. Thanks. 5Beautiful designSince I don't embroider, not sure how difficult it would be for a beginner. My 90 yr. old friend embroidered these for me and they came out absolutely gorgeous. You won't be sorry for buying this item, pillow cases good quality and design beautiful. 5They go pretty fast and turn out very prettyI finished these pillowcases in a couple of weeks while watching TV in the evenings. They go pretty fast and turn out very pretty. I washed them on gentle cycle, put them in the dryer for about 5 minutes then hung them up to dry on my clothes rack. I ironed them that evening and all the stamped blue had came out and they looked very nice, they will be a Great Christmas present! Good Quality also. 4Sew EasyArrived quickly, in perfect condition, lovely simple pattern, reasonably priced.Update:Finished these, (Pretty Posies) in a couple of days. Nice fabric, and very pretty. The easy pattern was a nice reprieve from other projects I have in process. 5Lovely praying hands for church fundraisersAbsolutely one of my favorites for a church craft fair. One is for sale on 9/17 at the Center Moriches craft fair. I am selling 10 of my beautiful pillowcases at the Presbyterian Church of Moriches. Please come and support the RSVP INC animal shelter. All proceeds go to them. I also have sewn this for two church fundraisers and they loved it so much! But I did the flowers in peach to bring more emphasis to the praying hands. Excellent service from seller. 5What a Nice ProjectI loved working on these butterflies. I like a pattern that's not too busy and won't take forever to finish.The material that the pillowcases were made of was a very nice fabric. All in all it was a very nice work project. Will surely use the Bucilla brand again. They are a step above the other brands I have purchased. 5You can look at these and think of being in God s caring hands!I would not say this is for beginners only because it has quite a bit of detail to it. But this is still a beautiful pillow case set for anyone who is religious. 5
