From Sampler to Pillow

Remember this from last September?

Well, I finally finished it.
Completely that is.


The sampler has actually been finished for months now.

And while I was stitching it, I decided what I would do with it.


A pillow.

I thought a pillow would be the perfect something to turn it into.
A pillow for a certain somebodies.
Who happen to live on a certain beach.
Of a certain island.


Certainly the best function and place for it.

PS. This is the first pillow I've ever made. It's really not much different than making a sachet... which I've made lots of.

PPS. Note to self: use smaller piping next time... sheesh!

No don't use smaller piping next time. This makes it look unique and I love it. Love the fabric too! But am in love with the sampler itself.
Great job someone living by the beach is going to be very happy.

Alisa, such beautiful handiwork! Your stitching is divine, and the piping....well, I adore it. The whole creation is perfect. I suppose you might just hand deliver it to the island dwellers and stick around for a while? ~ Angela
