Took your advice

June 8, 2008 at 12:00 am 5 comments

Ok, so after much pondering of what exactly to do with this little stitchery I had, I took Lisa’s and Renna’s advice (thanks so much!) and made it into a pillow.

I pondered and played with all the fabric I had in my stash.  Knowing very well that I wanted something that would compliment the little stitchery that I had spent time on.  At first, it was just going to be a plain fabric pillow, but then I remembered that I had some mushroom fabric that I thought would look cute with it.

A cute little pillow to go on my couch (or the floor, which ever the girls decide).

Considering that I’ve never done piece work like this before, I think it came out pretty darn good.  The only thing that I did hate about it was sewing the opening closed.  Originally I had all intentions of making it the correct size for this pillow form that I had.  Somehow in the making, I ended up cutting it too small and had to stuff it (blah!).  In the end though, I’m really happy with it.  James even said that he liked it.  And just for fun, K. wanted a picture of her holding the pillow (she’s the one that likes it the most).

Thank you so much Lisa and Renna for the advice!  Now I’m inspired to make more of these.

ETA:  I had so much fun making this little pillow, that now I’m completely inspired to try my had at a Log Cabin Pillow (1 for each of the girls).

    You did a fantastic job! Both the size of it and the fabric you chose compliment the stitchery perfectly. I especially like it in the bottom picture, being held by the little cutie. 😉

    Oh!! That is so cute! How adorable. and I agree with Renna, the fabric does compliment the embroidery. It is just brilliant. It makes me want to try my hand at embroidery. Looks like it might become K’s pillow more so than yours… 😉

    Took a look at the Log Cabin Pillows, You can definitely do those 🙂 Have fun!

    Thanks Lisa! And thank you so much for the tip. I have been wanting to try my had at a log cabin pillow but have been afraid. After doing this pillow, I think I just might have to do it. Oh, and K. don’t know but there is a pillow in the making as we speak. Doing the embroidery part for it right now. She knows I’m doing the embroidery but she doesn’t know that it’s going to end up being hers.
