Okay, first I want to show a kind of funny picture from today. When I went to get Katrina from her nap, I found this on her floor. For some reason it makes me laugh so much to see all the little marching blocks. K, here's the pillow.
I'm not very experienced with embroidery, and this was pretty thick fabric, but I figured out a good method and stuck with it. I probably could have saved my fingers some soreness by using a thimble, but I was stubborn.
My designs aren't necessarily polished or centered, but Katrina saw them and loved the "happy ca-pi-er" and "happy bu-fly," so I think she'll be really happy with the pillow. No, I know she'll love it. Adam told me to hide it because the moment she sees it she'll be very possessive and won't want to let go, and he's right! I'll hide it in my closet tonight.
I totally copied the dandelion idea from the Flickr pillow!
And I finished it up impatiently with a wonky handle and slightly messy seam, but it's done!
