How to Make It

1. Machine-stitch maxi rickrack along the bottom edge of the pillowcase so half of the rickrack shows.

2. Space the five other rickrack colors 1 inch apart and baste around the pillowcase.

3. Embroider rickrack with shades of floss using lazy daisy, French knots, reverse herringbone, zigzag, and chain stitches, referring to the photo as a guide. (Download the free stitch guide for instructions.)
