Birthday pillow for Eli by Speattle
Home & Decoration
An embroidered and decorative stitched pillow for my 2 year old nephew, Eli. This one is pieced with fabric from my stash. The thread used to stitch his name is some that I bought in 1977 when I took my first free motion machine embroidery class. It is still very good thread, DMC cotton. I love how the variegated blue and white looks with the cloud print on the border of the pillow.
After I stitched his name though, I thought the color did not stand out too much against the green chevron print, so I just straight stitched around the letters in orange to make them pop a bit.
Back of pillow is more cloud print fabric and I made an envelope closure.
