I see Addie tomorrow so I had to get that pillow made today. This is the first time I’ve made a pillow of any kind in probably at least 30 years.
I had planned to put black trim around it but Addie asked for orange. I told her I’d use orange if I had it but I didn’t think I had any orange. I was looking for backing fabric that would go with black chenille trim. If you remember my quilting days, about 99.99% of the fabrics I used were tone on tone or solid-ish and I hardly have any prints. This was the only Halloween print I could find and it’s a bit bright but might have been ok with black trim.
I found this one and had decided to use it with black trim. When I went to the closet to dig out the trim, the first one I saw was orange pom poms. Didn’t remember that I had that.
That would make her happy so . . back to the stash to find a better backing fabric.
This one worked!
I present . . my first cross stitch piece finished into a little pillow. It’s about 5″ square.
I think it’s so cute an I think she will love it!
