Little Cherry Pillow

I fell in love with a little pillow which was published in February / March 2010 edition of Simply Handmade by Melissa Phillips. I decided to have a go at making one myself and this is how it turned out...

Materials used;

Muslin and fabric from stash
Lace from The Ribbon Reel
Satin Ribbon from The Ribbon Reel
Buttons and pearls from stash

I am really pleased with how it turned out, especially as I've never been good at slip stitching cushions closed but seem to have managed it well this time! Will definately be making some more perhaps with some felt flowers or hearts.

Countdown to Christmas

Christmas is on its way and I'm trying to be a little more organised this year and have started making my cards.

Apologies for the poor photo quality, I still need to work on taking better photos!
