#83 Embroidered Pillow
Here is the project that I was working on a few days ago when my sewing machine and I got into a fight. Once my machine and I made up, I sewed up a little white pillow and an off-white cover for it. Things tend to get furry from the cat and the dog here, so I wanted the cover to be fully washable. My zippers need a little bit of work (you can see it at the bottom of the pillow) but all in all, I think I did a pretty good job. This pillow is very small, approximately 10"x10". I found the turtle picture when I did a search for "turtle tattoos". I thought tattoos would give me simple turtles with few lines. (Oddly, a colouring book picture of 'Gus-Gus', the fat mouse from Disney's Cinderella popped up in this search. I never did figure out why.) Transferring the picture to the pillow was a bit of a challenge. I hadn't thought of how I would do that. I ended up just doing my best drawing of it in pencil directly on the fabric. I didn't realize it would take as long as it did to do the embroidery. I have a new respect for people who embroider now.
