Customised Pillow Case for a God daughter

A friend commissioned me to make this pillow case for her God daughter's fourth birthday.  My new super dooper sewing machine, which does so much it can almost make a cup of tea, worked hard on the embroideries.  Then I made it up into the pillow case with a lace edging. Even I was amazed at how prettily this turned out! 

The symbols on the pillow relate to the little girl's patron saints, Our Lady of Grace and Therese of Lisieux, and her name is in one corner. Her God mother hopes it will be an heirloom piece for her to enjoy when she is older too.

Below are some close-up details of the embroideries.

 I hope she will enjoy resting her head on it!
