Since the " getter" has now been given the gift it's safe for me to show you the house-warming pillow that I made for a dear friend and her darling new home.
The numbers are of course her new house numbers done in raw edge applique. I hand drew the numbers on some wonderful fabric and then appliqued them to some painters drop cloth fabric that I had bought and washed up for a nice natural look.
After doing the applique I then stippled around the numbers and then made the pillow up with self made piping to match the fabric in the numbers. I used a pillow form and the back has an envelope opening so it can be washed if need be.
I might just have to make one of these for myself!
