Finished up the needle-felted Love Pillow (several posts below; scroll down 'til you find it), & wanted to show it to you in a REAL SETTING -- my bedroom. Think it looks cute in here cuz of the other letterforms.
Was happy to discover that Michael's Craft Store carries 12" x 16" pillow inserts -- didn't know this before starting this pillow top, so was preparing myself for having to create my own. Hooray for not having to. A big plus with this insert was the side zipper, which allowed me access for removing some of the stuffing. It didn't need to be that full -- didn't want the pillow to be so bulbous that the lettering was unreadable.
Did a blanket stitch around the perimeter of the pillow with two pieces of crewel embroidery yarn; stitched on felted wool balls that I got from Magic Cabin, before I figured out they charge like 25¢ per ball. And it was at that time, Officer, that I started crafting my own. But still have a bunch left, so gotta use 'em!
