Description

This is my first try at Violet Cathedral- one of the two October choices for the Pillow Pop Sew Along here in threadbias.

Obviously- mine isn't violet. My stash of grey and purples ran short and I was determined to have one done before October, so I used some Bleached White Kona and O' Tinsel Tree by Robert Kaufman.  I found some ice blue buttons in my stash and filled in with some covered button forms as well.

This is a fun pillow to make but it as equally fiddly as fun. Details of just how fiddly can be found over in the Pillow Pop group. But, to put it briefly- lots of very careful cutting and ironing is required- don't try it tired, and be sure to have some glue for basting- or stitch witchery- whichever you prefer- just don't try to sew all those windows with pins in!

It measures aprox. 20 x 20 ( give or tale a mm. or two)  and the Ikea Feather Pillow insert fits perfectly- I think that pillow insert has become my favorite .

I like this enough that I have two more planned for Christmas and a grey and violet one- or grey and something will be next after that!
