I was not too confident to use this piece of embroidery, because for me, this embroidery is quite complicated, I probably would never have enough patience to finish something like this. Plus I was afraid to ruin this precious gift. As I planned, I went for a simple twisted cord rope around the edge of the pillow in a lovely matching colour. I should have probably practiced before, but being constantly short on time I could not do that and went straight for attaching the cord. So let's just say that for the first ever time working with a cord rope, it looks fine, but there is some room for improvement. :-)
The back of the pillow has an envelope closure, like all the pillows I have ever made. Maybe it's time to be brave and try some other ways of finishing the back. I added three fabric buttons that our Mousey Mouse loves to play with and a simple hand stamped label.
I just love Belle & Boo designs! They are so sweet and full of charm. I am so happy to have a pillow sitting on my chair or sofa that puts a smile on my face every time I look at it. Have a lovely day! Larisa xox
