New Bolster Cover

Remember this?
I finally made it into something!My old bolster pillow needed a new cover, and this was perfect for it! Plus, the colours of the material I used compliment the colours of my other pillows. I didn't intend this, and only realized it when I put the bolster there to photograph!All sewn by hand, I've never made a pillow cover like this before, so am very pleased with the way it's turned out. Just one more embroidery to use up now!Also, Look at the wonderful package that arrived in my mailbox the other day!Thank you Robyn, I love the fabric!!

I am impressed the pillow is all hand sewn! I don't have the patience to hand sew something so big. The embroidery is gorgeous :)

I am gobsmacked you have hand sewn this you are a marvel and have been soooo busy lately, I love your lizard and your squirrel I think he definately looks like a squirrel, btw thanks for the suggestion for more presents for Isobel, I have a sewing basket for her so I will get what she needs for one of the projects from the book thanks!!
