Crewel Pillow

While trying to re-organize my sewing room and going through several drawers, I stumbled across an unfinished embroidery project. It was a Crewel Embroidery Kit entitled, “Bright Brocade Pillow.”

I don’t remember why I put it aside, but, this is where I left off.

It took me a week to complete all of the embroidery.

To finish the pillow, I used a 14 by 14 inch pillow form. Vowing not to buy anything new for this project, I used a 7-inch zipper from my zipper stash. I serged all raw edges. Sewed the zipper in and then the sides and inserted the pillow form.

Now, I can scratch off one more item from my to-do list. Another unfinished project bites the dust.

    It is stunning! Maybe I should work on the half-finished cross stitch in my closet.

    It’s really very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I just use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the most recent news.
