I needed a couple of small thank you gifts and decided to make soothing eye pillows.
To make these more personalised I decided to embroider the recipients initial onto the front of them. Normally when I embroider letters I do a simple back stitch as I know I can do it neatly. Due to this fabric being a little busy I wanted a stitch that was a little more bolder. Years ago (9 or 10) I did chain stitching on some Christmas decorations but I haven’t done any since. I had a practice a scrap bit of the fabric first to familiarise myself with it again before I did the front of these. It all came back to me easily and I’m happy with the finished result.
