01.05.2011 Blogger's Pillow Party - Plus Patchwork

Updated: Dec 24, 2017

When Rachel over at Stitched In Color announced her Blogger's Pillow Party, I had to join.  Had to.  Why would I miss this?  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make myself a spanky new pillow and join the fun!

I've put in the last few stitches on the binding tonight; just in the nick of time!

You see, I have an old dark leather club-chair in my bedroom that was just begging for a little personality.  It couldn't be to pretty or too plain.  It's my husband's "sit, watch TV and eat ice cream" chair; so keeping it less frilly was a must.  I decided to use Innocent Crush for the pluses and a linen border, with one little plus hand stitched with floss.  I paired it with some Momo Freebird in an eggplanty color for the binding to bring out some of the darker colors in the palette.  A buttoned closure was added in the back (my first time using my buttonholer {pat on the back}) and voila!  A new piece of (manly-ish) prettiness for my room.  It is a little more plump than I wanted, but I'm sure it will be squished down and perfectly comfy in no time.

I might not have done it perfectly, but it works.  I'm pretty darn proud of me.(chalk another one up for learning something new) Thanks Rachel, for inviting me to party along! :-)
