In addition to making my new Sketch Stitch Pillows to send my sister, I wanted to try a couple other fun, new ideas. I am making most of these pillows to be layered on a daybed in baby Sylvia's room (who will be here in late June) -- We're all so excited!!! It's all about color and anything goes!
Here is my very first attempt at a round pillow. Originally I was going to add petals, similar to what I did with my Patchwork Flower Pillow, but decided rather to stop with the circle. The fabric I used three times is a Heather Baily print, the others I'm not sure. I just pulled a few bright, contrasting prints and gave it a go.
And, for the fun of it I had to make an S Pillow, just for baby Sylvia. It's definitely not perfect, but it was a lot of fun! I left both ends open for easy stuffing and closing them up went a little wonky with the stitching, hopefully Sylvia won't mind. Of course now my own children are asking for their letters K, J, and H -- which seem much more difficult than the S, so we'll have to see.
Thanks so much for all the sweet pillow feedback you gave me here and on my facebook page, I really appreciate it!
