During my week away I gratefully found a little time for some unplanned sewing projects. The kind where you just sit down, start cutting, begin piecing, and then soon you have something. These are my very favorite kind of sewing projects -- all pillows, all different, all for my sister.
This is my Flower Stitch Pillow.
I cut out flowery shapes from my felt scraps basket and started layering them on a large piece of soft wool felt.
Using a charcoal thread, I stitched on the details just like on my other Sketch Stitch Pillows. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do! I really enjoy it!
The wool felt is thick enough that you don't even need a stabilizer. LOVE that!
I finished off the pillow in this fun print, actually from Jo-Ann's (I went looking for the new Denyse Schmidt -- my closest store didn't have it, of course) but I really liked the color and feel of this fabric so I brought it home instead. After all, I couldn't leave a sewing supply store empty handed, goodness no!
For now it has a nice home on my favorite chair.
I have four more finished pillows to share, each very different from the next -- so, be sure to stop back!
