My First Pillow

I've made my first pillow.

The wording says Xmas 2011 and i used my sewing machine to put the words on.

I need to put the cording around it but it was really easy to do. I followed Lynn's instructions on how to make a pillow and as soon as I visit spotlight for some fabric glue I will be adding the cording to this lovely pillow. It really didn't take long at all to make.

The only problem I seem to have when stuffing things is not putting enough stuffing in and realising after the fact!

I have also finished the 8th penguin. They're pumping out at the moment!



  1. Congrats for the finishes, I love these penguins and the pillow looks good too!

  2. Your pillow is cute!! Congrats on making your first pillow Margaret!! Wasn't it fun :D!!

  3. It was fun :D and it's such an easy way to finish a little cross stitch without framing. So much cheaper!

  4. Woohoo! Great job on finishing, love the way you have put the year on the back, great touch!Can't wait to see more:)
