Embroidered Pillowcase

I’m getting caught up on things that I made for people for Christmas, so here is pillowcase number 2 that I made for my husband’s dad and stepmom:

I had made the first pillowcase 2 or 3 years ago and ran out of time to finish the second one, so I gave it to them with an IOU.  Not too long after that I hurt my index finger in a mandolin slicer accident (haven’t used the slicer since!) and wasn’t able to sew for a long time.  Then I forgot about it for a few years, but remembered it for this past Christmas.  The pillow case came from this kit that I got from JoAnn Fabrics:

I didn’t like the purple colors, and it doesn’t go well with the colors in their home, so I modified them to be a red and coral color instead.  They were pretty happy to finally have a matching set!
