My daughter sent me a link to a pillow she wanted from Pottery Barn.
I told her I could make her one.
I just happened to be at Walmart getting some fabric.
She picked out which fabric she wanted.
I picked up a square of black felt for the face.
I used a blind stitch to appliqué the features in place.
Chalk came in handy to mark the lines for quilting.
Once it was hand quilted, the pillow was easy to stitch up by machine.
I knew that I didn't want to make the stem like the original.
There was a little bit of brown felt in my fabric closet.
I drew out the pattern and then cut it out of the felt.
The running stitch on the stem has a naive and handmade quality to it.
The retail price for this pillow is $32.50.
It only cost me a few dollars to make because we had most of the supplies.
Isn't it a cutie?
