I made this little pillow for February and then I found out about a couple of pillow parties. I know this pillow is not perfect but I decided to enter it anyway because I had already made it.
Some of the things I would do differently: well, one, I would make the embroidered piece smaller for a pillow this size (or make a bigger pillow) because the quilted parts barely show: two, I don't think I will make a pillow this holiday specific, except Christmas, again; and three, I would add a more opaque back to the embroidered piece so as to not see the pieced back behind it.
Overall, I like it but I tend to do this with most of my projects. At least sewing projects. I'm sure this is because I am such a novice. Maybe I'll become less critical with experience?
Posting this pillow again in its own post so I could enter it into the Stitched in Color Pillow Party for February. Is that weird? I had also entered into the Great SMS Pillow Contest. Although the Sew, Mama, Sew contest did ask that we come up with a wonderful name for our pillow, which I did not. Nothing clever came to mind. (Frown) Help?!
Thanks for looking!
