Description

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.

Aw...who doesn't love Tigger? So cute- and all the embroidery touches are very sweet- I am guessing this is going to be a much loved pillow:)))

His mom will like the green a lot; bright green is her favorite color.

I didn't know that. Score for me! Always a plus to be on the good side of sisters in law.
