One of my first embroidery projects at age 13 was stitching ducks on pillowcases. I don’t think anyone embroiders on pillowcases anymore (maybe monograms) but all those vintage patterns are sill quite useful to use in quilts and special clothing for children. You can bet the farm that my granddaughter will have lots of cool embroidery on her duds. I like to sew as well but even a cheap t-shirt from Old Navy would look snappy with some ducks on it.
