The embroidery was a breeze to complete, it was a very creative and enjoyable process. Back stitch for the body, lazy daisies (big and small) and french knots for the flowers, satin stitch for the jacket, couching for the stems. These are all the lovely stitches I used for this piece. Nothing complicated but rather simple embroidery with a lovely result. Oh, and sure thing I used my new pretty stars embroidery leftover holders for this work.
Even though the back side of the pillow is very simple, I like it a lot, maybe as equal as the front. I had to use a piece of smaller gingham fabric (the same as on the front) for the back because as always I buy my fabric in fat quarters and don't work the pattern out before I begin the work but rather do that as I go so no wonder sometimes I end up with not enough fabric.
Just a small label on the back, with a bit of stamping in brown ink. It really is made with love because I love pink and I love flowers, and I love what I do.
The pillow was not made for anyone really, but only to accommodate Mr Squeak. Quite often I make things only for the sake of making it. Some people might find it rather strange but I truly enjoy the sewing and the creativity behind it. So the pillow is going to wait for a while until it finds a new friend. Wishing you all a great week ahead of you! Larisa xox
